Why did you choose WVU?:
I was drawn to WVU due to the diverse training opportunity it offered, I was seeking training at a Level 1 Trauma Center, but also wanted experience in a rural environment. WVU wonderfully merges your training at a Level 1 Trauma center and a Community based ED with the additional opportunity to train at a rural hospital. Coming from Wyoming, having the exposure to Level 1 is invaluable but the experience and training at a community and rural location combined is the perfect combination for my future practice. However, what sealed the deal were the incredible individuals I met during the interview, they create a supportive and encouraging learning environment and immediately make you feel like a part of the WVU family!
I was born in Michigan and finished High school in Wyoming. I stayed in Wyoming to play soccer and obtained a dual degree in Physiology and Kinesiology at the University of Wyoming. I became an EMT, worked on a rural department and taught an EMT course while going back to school for my Masters in Kinesiology and Health with a focus on Exercise Physiology. I then attended the University of Washington in Seattle for medical school. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, trail running, hunting and fishing, drawing or just being outside with friends and family.
