Biography

Hometown: Milford, MA

Undergrad Institution: Assumption University

Medical School: University at Buffalo

Future plans: Right now I really like both Trauma and CT surgery. I definitely want to
work in an academic center and be able to help train future physicians.

Why UMASS?: The people! Everyone is so kind and willing to help and they truly
care about you as a person. The camaraderie amongst the residents immediately stood
out to me. I was looking for a program that would train me to be both an excellent
technical and academic surgeon, and UMass was the perfect fit. My journey in
medicine started here as an undergrad student and I could not be happier to be back as
part of the UMass family.

Favorite thing to do in Worcester: I love trying all of the different local restaurants.
There are so many amazing places to eat and have a good time with friends and
family. I like being outdoors and there are plenty of places to do outdoor activities,
like fishing, in the surrounding towns.
