Where I am from: I am originally from Lexington, South Carolina. I attended Davidson College in NC for undergrad, followed by medical school at Duke.

Where am I going: I am interested in either general pediatric neurology or neonatal neurology, specifically palliative care aspects of neonatal neurology.

Why am I here: Due to my interest in neonatal neurology, I was blown away by the strength of WashU’s neonatal neurology opportunities. I was also looking for a program that had global health opportunities and loved the possibility of engaging in trips with Soe Mar, MD, to Myanmar. Since being here in St. Louis, I have loved getting to know the wonderful members of the WashU peds neurology department. I also enjoy all of the green space in St. Louis. It feels like the perfect balance of big city and outdoorsy space. There’s also so many cultural experiences available — from the art and history museum, to musicals at the MUNY and Shakespeare in the Park during summers at Forest Park.
