Outside of Pharmacy

I enjoy UGA football, watching way too much Netflix, a nice cup of Earl Grey tea, the beach, and trying new places to eat. A fun fact about myself is that I've seen my favorite band, Paramore, nearly 20 times live

Why MUSC

I chose MUSC for my second year in transplant because of its reputation as a fantastic transplant center with a robust on-call experience that would help me become an independent practitioner. MUSC also provides me with innumerable opportunities to precept students, which was one of my most important goals going into my second year of residency. I also love the large residency class, as there is always someone to talk to who is going through the exact same thing you are.

Outside of Pharmacy

I enjoy running, visiting craft breweries, hanging out with my dog, visiting with family and friends, and watching live music. A fun fact about myself is that I decided to become a pharmacist without ever stepping foot in a pharmacy!

Why MUSC

I chose MUSC for the experience that comes from training in an institution that has been involved in transplant since the beginning. MUSC transplants a variety of organ types and I knew training here would provide me with the experience to pursue a job in any area of transplant. Given that I came from a 2 resident PGY-1 program, I also was excited about the large residency class and variety of specialty services offered at MUSC.
