Why Yale? Besides being seriously dedicated to our learning and development as pediatricians, it’s been obvious to me since interviewing that the people here are kind, brilliant, hilariously down to earth, and genuinely caring to an inspiring degree. There’s a priority to maintain a sense of humanism in everything we do here, and the effects of that on both the vibe of our program and the care we provide to patients and families cannot be overstated.
Favorite Apizza: Pizza-wise, Modern at the moment. Bread-wise, Atticus. Bagel-wise, Olmo.
How do you stay busy outside the hospital? Hang out and cook dinner with my wonderful co-residents, play my ukulele, dance, go for walks 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.
