Private Practice, Noran Neurological Clinic Twin Cities, Minnesota

Where I am from: I have spent most of my life in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where I went to undergraduate and medical school at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

Where I am going: I am going to practice general child neurology in a primarily outpatient setting. I like seeing patients in clinic with a variety of neurologic diagnoses.

Why I am here: I was looking for a residency program that was on the larger side because I wanted to see many patients with diverse pathology. I wanted to see plenty of straightforward general child neurology patients as well as more rare, complicated patients in various subspecialties. I have definitely found that here. I also wanted to have a cohort of co-residents to travel through this experience with. On my interview day I was very impressed by the warm, welcoming feel of this program. Soe Mar, MD, MBBS, MRCP, invited us to her home for the interview dinner, and she and her husband cooked a delicious dinner. I was pleasantly surprised to meet a group of both adult and pediatric faculty, residents and their families. This culture has continued to hold true in my time here and my co-residents have become some of my closest friends.

I have found in St. Louis an accessible city with lots to keep me busy. My husband and I bought a house just south of the hospital. We spend our time exploring local breweries and restaurants and taking our daughter to playgrounds and pools around the city.
