Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency

« Med-Peds Residency


I’m originally from Southern California, but have enjoyed living in the Midwest since I started medical school. Outside of medicine, I like to get outdoors, hang out at coffee shops, and try different restaurants.

Why I Chose Peoria

I picked Peoria because I really enjoyed my interview day and felt like this was a program where I would be well-supported as a person and that I could follow my career interests. Also, I love the area, the countryside is beautiful and I enjoy getting to explore the different trails, and Peoria has all the stuff I like about living in a city like food, coffee, sports, music, theatre, and I’m sure much more that I have not discovered yet.
