Why Iowa

On my interview day, the residents I spoke with had diverse career goals and told me they all felt extremely supported in their individual endeavors. That rang true for me, as someone with interests in research, education, and rural health, because I felt like I could become the neurologist I was meant to be in a supportive and friendly environment.

Professional/Research Interests

Career goals: I’ve always been fascinated by movement disorders, but my most recent research undertaking - a QI project focused on improving communication in the neuro ICU - has gotten me jazzed about neurocritical care. I’m excited to explore both fields more during residency!

Research interests: Quality improvement, medical ethics, high-stakes decision-making

More About Me

Interests: Hanging out with my parakeet named Jiffy, keeping my fingernails looking fly, and listening to groovy bops on long night walks
