    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?:Over and over, each program stressed the importance of “fit” and it was not until UNR that I truly understood what that meant. This obscure term came to represent an ease of conversation, common passions and a sense of belonging in a group of residents and faculty whom I had just met. Having spent most of my life in the Lake Tahoe area, returning to Reno felt like coming home to my favorite outdoor playground. The program also has so much to offer- community based in a university setting, unopposed in Emergency medicine and OB/GYN, rural, wilderness and sports medicine experiences with the added opportunity for a Master’s in Public Health.

    • Hobbies: I love to be outside- hiking, running, skiing or paddle boarding up at Lake Tahoe! I also love to spend time with my family and friends. My husband and I have a pretty serious case of wanderlust and want to continue exploring the world. Other than that, you could find me sitting down with a good book or dabbling with some watercolor paints.

    Why did you choose the University of Nevada School of Medicine, Reno Family Medicine Residency?:My husband and I met during our undergraduate careers while volunteering at the School of Medicine. We left Reno to attend medical school together at St. George’s University- which was an amazing adventure that allowed us to study abroad and in a variety of locations throughout the United States. But after being away from home for so many years, we knew that coming back to our families and community was next in our journey. During our interview, we reconnected with faculty and residents that we had known from our undergraduate careers- and it truly felt like coming home for us. The entire UNR FMR team was welcoming, friendly and kind. The warmth we felt from the entire team coupled with our love for Nevada is why we chose UNR FMR for our budding careers as Family Medicine Physicians.
