I graduated from Duke University in May 2012, where I majored in Biology (Genomics concentration) with a certificate in Genome Sciences and Policy. Outside of the classroom, I spent time conducting research in a colorectal cancer genomics lab and as director of Duke’s Model UN team. I was dedicated to promoting women’s leadership opportunities through both the Baldwin Scholars program as well as leadership roles in my sorority Alpha Delta Pi.
After graduating from Duke University, I moved to Boston, MA and worked for two years at Putnam Associates, a strategy consulting firm for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. At Putnam Associates, I worked across a variety of disease areas and gained experience in the pricing and marketing of oncology drugs. I moved back to my hometown of Chicago in the summer of 2014 to attend medical school at the University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine.
After four years of medical school at the University of Chicago, I matched into an obstetrics and gynecology residency at Brown University/Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island. My time at Brown and in Providence, RI confirmed my passion for women's reproductive health, cancer care, and understanding the financial toxicity associated with our treatment decisions. I am thrilled to be taking the final step in my surgical training as the incoming Breast Surgical Oncology fellow at Yale University starting in August 2022. My career aspirations are to continue to provide evidence-based breast surgery care to cancer patients for years to come, with a focus on understanding and treating the gynecologic and sexual side effects of cancer treatment. Outside of work, I love spending time with my family and friends, exploring New England, taste-testing cappuccinos and baked goods, becoming a home-mixologist and spending time snuggling my cats.
