Why Yale? There are so many reasons why Yale Peds! The amazing people and the dedication to learning and academic rigor, all mixed in with a grounded sense of humanism. It was clear to me from the start that the people here are kind, intelligent, hilarious, and caring to an inspiring degree. It’s a genuinely wonderful place to be.
Favorite Apizza: Sally's (at the moment)
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? Play my ukulele, dance, go for walks and bike rides around Yale’s beautiful campus, try new New Haven restaurants, try new snacks at Trader Joe’s, attempt to resuscitate my plants q 7 days.
