If you have never lived in LA before, what are you most excited about?
I am most excited about living near the ocean, all of the amazing hiking around, and new rocks to climb.
What are your areas of interest within EM or future career plans?
I am interested in wilderness and global medicine.
Why did you choose UCLA-Olive View for residency?
I loved that at UCLA, there was a fantastic diversity of training sites. When I came for my interview, I thought the residents were hilarious and they already treated me like family. Faculty were telling me funny stories about their bands. It seemed like a perfect fit!
What else do you do in your free time? What hobbies do you have?
I am an avid rock climber, hiker, skier, cyclist, and overall outdoor enthusiast. I love taking weekend warrior trips to local nature spots.
Is there any info you'd like to share?
One of my dreams is to acquire a camper van and build out the back for weekend adventures.
Are you involved in any research or national EM committees etc? If so, what?
I wrote two review articles, one of which was published in AJEM about Preoxygenation and emergency airway management.
