What attracted you to UVM Medical Center: I knew the emergency medicine PGY2 residency was for me because of the wide variety of opportunities for inter-professional learning, integration into rural medicine, and most importantly the down-to-earth & family nature of the pharmacy/ED. It was very apparent during my interview that the pharmacy team was well respected and utilized throughout the hospital and genuinely loved their jobs. Kyle and Blake seemed like the perfect team to train me, with their heavy involvement in departmental research and genuine interest in helping me reach my full potential as an EM pharmacist!
What do you love most about VT: Vermont is so beautiful during all four seasons! Burlington has so much to offer, and I really enjoy a tight-knit community. There is so much to do outdoors, lots of great food (including the farmer’s market being so accessible), and of course some of the best breweries!
What do you enjoy doing in your free time: Anything and everything outside! Whether it is a summer lake day, fall hike, or awesome winter blue-bird day up in the mountains skiing. When I am not outside, you’ll find me in my kitchen cooking or baking with my cat, Ramona (she is a great sous-chef).
