Resident (Class of 2024)

Combined Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency

« Med-Peds Residency


I’m from a rural town in West TN. Currently, I see myself as a combined hospitalist, but also see a possibility of sub-specializing. I am excited to explore Resident as Teacher opportunities during my time here. Outside of medicine, I love all things cinema, cosmetology, and crocheting! I also enjoy my gym time and baking the occasional good.

Why I Chose Peoria

I love the program here because it has such a wide encatchment area-basically everything IL outside of Chicago which translates to more exposure to various stages of disease on both the medicine and peds side. You will get to see all of the horses and the zebras here. The faculty and staff are absolutely amazing and treat you like family. As a city, Peoria is extremely convenient and there is something to do for everyone. It’s simply a great place to be.
