Biography

Hometown: Sharon, MA

Undergrad: UMass Amherst

Medical School: University of Massachusetts Medical School

Future plans: Pediatric or CT surgery. I want to ideally practice in an academic environment and would love to teach part-time as well.

Why UMass?: I wanted to go to a program where I would easily have the option to pursue competitive fellowships or go straight into practice, a program where I would have plenty of opportunities to operate, where I would be exposed to a diverse patient population (with underserved and minorities) and one where there is strong camaraderie within the department. After interviewing and rotating at other programs, I found that UMass fit the best with all those criteria. I also went to medical school here and was able to view the surgery culture from a student’s perspective.  

Favorite thing to do in Worcester: There are a multitude of places to eat – ranging from restaurants to small family owned places to dessert specific places – and many small cafes. Because of Worcester’s diverse population, there are a lot of ethnic dishes available to try. I also love the outdoors and surprisingly to some, there are a lot of hidden gems (trails, parks, gardens) nearby and in Worcester itself.
