I was born and raised in Indiana. I received my undergraduate from Xavier University with a BA in Spanish. After spending a year in Ecuador teaching and doing environmental conservation work, I returned to Indiana for medical school. I completed residency at University of Michigan. I worked for 5 years as a Pediatric Hospitalist in Toledo, Ohio, where I discovered my interest in resident and student education. I feel very fortunate to be back in Indiana as a member of the Hospitalist team at Riley. I spend my free time with my husband and our 2 rambunctious little boys.
