What brought you to Greenville?

My husband and I were very happy in Nashville, TN but the incredible opportunity to start and build an emergency medicine residency, we couldn’t pass up the exciting ride.

What is you favorite part of working at Prisma Health Upstate?

The people.  I get to work with some of the most talented and caring physicians, nurses, students, and staff on a daily basis.

What is your favorite aspect about the residency program?

The team environment that we enjoy together.

How do you like spending your free time?

I am married to my wonderful husband, David and we have a beautiful 2-year old Harper Grace with one on the way in December.  Together, we enjoy exploring Greenville.  I am also a complete fitness addict and enjoy teaching classes at the Y and at the Life Center.  I am looking forward to transitioning back into distance running and triathlon following the birth of my second daughter.

Solid work ethic, past track record of commitment and passion to succeed.  Diverse interests and backgrounds.

What is your favorite place in Greenville?

I’m a sucker for Sully’s Steamers for a good breakfast sandwich on the way to an adventure on the Swamp Rabbit Trail.

What advice can you give to M4 students entering the application season?

Relax and be yourself.  As cliché as it sounds, it is all about the FIT.
