Why VCU EM: When creating my rank list one of the best pieces of advice I received was to go somewhere that you could see yourself walking the halls every day. On my interview day at VCU, I could see myself working and learning in the ED alongside the attendings and residents that I had met. I could see myself being excited to go to work each day.
Favorite thing to do in RVA: Jogging along the James River.
Best kept RVA secret: Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, not a secret but a great place to visit.
Fun fact: When I was in high school, I won a month-long trip to Australia.
