Outdoor activities, discovering new restaurants and coffee shops, and relaxing with my cat.

Resident Bio:

I grew up in Connecticut and spent most of my educational years in New England before moving out to the beautiful Northwest for general surgery residency. Thus far at UW, I have developed interests in oncology, trauma, burns, and reconstructive surgery, as well as outcomes research and systems improvement. Seattle has also led me to new hobbies including bouldering, stand up paddle boarding, and surfing (still a work in progress)!
