Hometown: Austin, Texas
Medical School: Texas A & M
Why I Chose Greenville: Having lived in Texas my whole life, when considering residency options, I looked for a new “home” to grow in the next several years of my personal and professional life. I am a big believer that home is about the people around you. I was so impressed by everyone I met during my interview in Greenville. The residents were open and engaging despite being busy with their workday. It was clear how dedicated the faculty and administration are to both challenging and supporting their residents. I loved that in addition to the top-notch training with all the perks of a large academic medical campus, everyone involved with the residency was a close-knit family with great camaraderie. Also, Greenville is pretty cool! Living in a laid-back environment has always been my preference, but the city also offers fun activities, tons of good food options (a biggie for my husband and me) and is near lots of other cool cities to explore as well. I am looking forward to spending the next few years here.
