Why VCU EM: Friendly and family atmosphere among residents and attendings that values diversity and inclusion within the program to provide care for our diverse population. In addition, Richmond is a great city to train in from a wellness standpoint

Favorite thing to do in RVA: Too many things to list! But running the beautiful streets of Richmond, relaxing on the beaches of the James River, and hanging out at the awesome breweries

Best kept RVA secret: It wouldn't be a secret if zi told you, but one of the lesser known facts is that Richmond has the only class IV rapids within the city limits in the United States making it a great outdoor destination

Fun fact: I was interviewed by the local news for sliding through vomit at a restaurant play place
