What is your favorite place to visit, thing(s) to do in, or memory from living in LA?
I love frequent visits to K-town (especially for KBBQ or soft tofu stew), searching for cool murals in the arts district, and concerts at the Wiltern and Hollywood Bowl.
What are your areas of interest within EM or future career plans?
I’m open-minded about what my future might hold in EM, but some current interests I have are critical care and pediatrics.
Why did you choose UCLA-Olive View for residency?
I really liked the diverse patient population and broad training offered by the county/academic split. And, on top of feeling in awe of the amazing faculty and residents I met on my interview day, I felt at home. I could see how motivated and down-to-earth everyone in the program was, and I remember instantly wanting to become a part of that culture!
What else do you do in your free time? What hobbies do you have?
I love skiing, hiking, tennis, music and movies, art museums, board games, and weekly trivia nights.
