I grew up in the great city of Pittsburgh, PA, where I studied Rehabilitation Science and Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh.  When I wasn’t in school I enjoyed working as an ER tech and research assistant, as well as volunteering in the city.

I moved to Portland over a year ago to attend PA school at OHSU.  I’ve enjoyed experiencing the program, city, and new people.  With the first year under my belt I am enjoying the challenges that the second year holds.  I am building my knowledge base and developing clinical skills with each rotation.  I have enjoyed working in tandem with medical professionals and students in other disciplines along my educational journey.   After graduation I hope to become involved in community/population-based health initiatives in addition to clinical work.  I look forward to the rest of my training and soon joining the ranks!
