Why did you choose to do a fellowship at the University of Colorado?

The program’s mission to train fellows through education, advocacy work, and patient care is consistent with the goals I have for my training experience. As a primary care physician, I’ve witnessed the stigma associated with substance use disorders, and it was important to me to find a fellowship program that would encourage improving addiction treatment within the primary care setting. On my interview day I met a wonderful team that sincerely expressed interest and support of those goals. I was also impressed by the program’s involvement in health policy, advocacy, and medical education. I’m excited to be part of a program that provides exceptional patient care, while seeing that addiction care goes beyond the bedside. 

Tidbit About Yourself: 


I love to travel and explore different places around the world, but have somehow managed to only live in the northeastern part of the country. I grew up in Pennsylvania, and have lived in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York City, and Boston. I am excited to move out west, and to explore Denver and Colorado. I am especially looking forward to camping trips! Ever since I went on my first camping trip last year in British Colombia, I’ve been eager to plan future ones! I’m also a huge fan of spicy food. My partner and I are always looking for the spiciest Thai curry we can handle (hopefully Denver has a spicy food scene!). During my downtime, you can find me watching an episode of Seinfeld or scrolling through design or architecture photos.

Residency: Internal Medicine, University of Minnesota

Medical School: Cooper Medical School of Rowan University

Why did you choose to do a fellowship at the University of Colorado?

I moved to Colorado for Endocrinology Fellowship and loved every minute of it! When I met the faculty and heard more about the Addiction Medicine program, it was an easy decision to stay! The program is patient-focused, flexible, and allows me to explore my individual interests in Addiction Medicine and its cross-over with Endocrinology. Plus, being so close to the mountains and world-class skiing isn’t so bad either.

Tidbit About Yourself: 

I try to stay busy by skiing, running, and playing community sports. My dog and I are regulars at several local dog parks, and we love exploring new hiking trails. On less active days, I’m usually concocting odd (but delicious?) kombucha flavors or meeting up with friends at bar trivia. The Minnesota State Fair is my absolute favorite holiday, and I’m the only person I know who named their dog after their favorite adrenal steroid hormone.
