PGY- 2 Emergency Medicine Resident


Hometown: Cumberland, RI

Pharmacy School: The University of Rhode Island 

PGY-1 Program: Loyola University Medical Center 

Why did you choose Michigan's residency program? I chose Michigan Medicine's EM Residency because of the high acuity patients, teaching environment, Level 1 Trauma designation and the preceptors I met during my interviews. Michigan's Emergency Department has over 100 beds, so I knew I would see a plethora of disease states and patient populations, and learn a lot from the busy environment. Michigan has it's own separate pediatric ED as well as a nine bed ICU in the adult ED, and these were two features that really drew me to this program because I knew I would get a very well-rounded residency experience. 

Research Topic: Evaluation of Standard Electrolyte Replacement in Patient's with Low Body Weight in the Emergency Department 

Writing Topic: The Pharmacy's Role in a Mass Casualty Incident at Michigan Medicine  

Hobbies outside of pharmacy: Going to the beach, trying different coffee shops and going to barre 

Favorite Book: A Woman is No Man 

Favorite Movie: Set it up 

Favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor: Mani 

Advice for future residents: Just be really open to new experiences, different rotations and learning opportunities if you pursue residency even if you're already set on a specialty in your mind.
