Why I chose this program/Grand Rapids for my training
Grand Rapids is a rapidly growing city in a beautiful part of Michigan, with our extended family close by. The pediatric critical care fellowship is in an ICU that cares for a large number of children, including those requiring cardiac intensive care. This is a medical system which provides comprehensive needs to the patient population while providing a broad exposure for my fellowship training.
Hobbies/what I do outside of work
I enjoy outdoor excursions for hiking, camping, Frisbee, and tennis. Recently I have also added baking to the list of activities (and sometimes calamities).

In addition to gaining skills in critical care, I have a passion for education both for medical students as well as for residents. I plan to continue to focus on clinical education throughout my career.
