Home Town: Lafayette, LA
When I study medicine, I most enjoy learning about: I especially enjoy learning the pathophysiology behind disease processes. Knowing what specifically causes a disease gives me a better understanding of the clinical picture and how treatments are developed to target the main problem.
Things that make me unique are: I enjoy creating things whether it be drawing pet portraits, hand-binding books, writing songs, or baking cookies.
I’m not only a doctor, I also like to: I am an adventure-seeker, so I am constantly looking for new things to do or new hobbies to develop. Past and current hobbies include yoga, pilates, Brazilian jiujitsu, crocheting, and weight lifting.
To get myself motivated I think of: I think of the babies and families that are depending on me to take care of them!
The hours I spend warm and cozy with a book I’m reading: A Walk to Remember, the Hunger Games trilogy, and any Juliet Marillier book
With popcorn in hand the movie I’m watching is: I like romantic comedies and action adventures like The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Red, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Matrix
Without a DVR on my cable box I’d miss (or I’m in front of the TV so I won’t miss): Game of Thrones!
I chose the UAMS Pediatrics Residency Program because it’s wonderful and...: Everyone I met was extremely nice and laid back, the hospital was beautiful, and Little Rock has so many outdoorsy activities nearby!
