Why Family Medicine: Family Medicine provides a unique opportunity to see investments in patients and the community through long-term continuity of care. Through preventative medicine, patients can be empowered and inspired to bring about meaningful changes in their lives by taking ownership of their health.

Why PFM: As an EVMS graduate, I have always felt at home with great people who support, nurture and believe in their trainees. Throughout the application process, the Portsmouth Family Medicine program was exceedingly responsive, transparent, and showed the desire for constant and dynamic improvement. 

Fun fact about yourself or hobbies: I love spending time with my husband whether it's taking mini road trips, checking out new museums, or watching documentaries. I also enjoy watching true crime shows, playing board games, and scrapbooking.
