I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in West Newton. At 13, I moved to Philadelphia with my sister and mother, an immigrant from Greece. After graduating from Barnard College in 2011, where I studied Behavioral Neuroscience and French, I moved to DC to pursue an MD and PhD in Neuroscience at Georgetown University. My PhD research focused on Multiple Sclerosis and immune-modulation of the central nervous system. As I progressed in my graduate studies, I found myself increasingly drawn to Family Medicine because of the meaningful relationships that it fosters with patients, allowing me to care for the whole person.
My introduction to Franklin Square Hospital as a fourth-year medical student at Georgetown University was due to a very fortunate accident. Having initially thought that I was signing-up for a rotation located at Franklin Square in DC, I was very surprised to see that it would be 1.5 hours commute to Baltimore! However, after spending two rotations with the Franklin Square family, I felt a unique kinship with the hospital and the community that it serves. It turned out not to be a mistake, but a happy, little accident, because Franklin Square Medical Center feels like home!
When I’m not in the hospital, I am likely to be found (re-)watching Seinfeld, biking around the city, singing at open-mics, trying to learn a new language or dabbling in my many many arts-and-crafts projects.
I am thrilled to be continuing my medical training with the MedStar Franklin Square Family Medicine team and look forward to serving the Baltimore community and building relationships with you!

Growing up my family moved often for humanitarian projects in Kenya, Laos and Thailand, with a home base in California. I graduated from Scripps College with a degree in Social Change through Art. I went on to work as a studio artist in Los Angeles, a doula for San Francisco General Hospital, and as a humanitarian aid worker for International Rescue Committee in South Sudan. While working in South Sudan, I had an opportunity to visit clinics in a refugee camp where doctors worked to take care of patients with severely limited resources. This experience made it clear to me what an incredible difference committed care providers could make and convinced me that my heart was in medicine.
I completed a premedical post-baccalaureate at Bennington College in Vermont, before starting medical school at George Washington University in Washington, DC. At George Washington, I was lucky to meet wonderful friends, one of whom introduced me to Family Medicine, and another who would later become my husband! Family Medicine was a natural fit for me as my clinical interests span the spectrum from Pediatrics to Maternal Health to Geriatrics. Other passions of mine include care for medically underserved populations, medical education leadership and point of care ultrasound.
MedStar Franklin Square stood out to me on the interview trail as a warm and supportive program with diverse and engaged faculty. I can’t wait to join the MedStar Franklin Square family! I will be moving to Baltimore with my husband, who will be training in Radiology at University of Maryland, and our two sweet cats. Outside of medicine, I enjoy reading, getting out into nature and spending time with loved ones.

Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine
University of Mary Washington
I grew up in Richmond, VA and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Mary Washington. I then worked as a medical scribe in Emergency Medicine and in several outpatient settings before moving to Blacksburg, VA, to attend medical school at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM). I originally intended to go into Emergency Medicine, but I learned through my experiences during rotations that I wanted a specialty that allowed me to build lasting relationships with my patients while still affording me a full-scope of practice and plentiful procedures. I became particularly passionate about working in underserved communities, both local and global, during medical school and this also drove me to seek out a program that would allow me to practice a full scope of family medicine.
I felt immediately at home during my interview at Franklin Square and I am beyond thrilled to be completing my family medicine residency with the amazing team here. I was particularly drawn to the high pediatric volume in clinic and the opportunity to undergo training regarding refugee medicine in DC.
Outside of medicine, I love anything outdoors – kayaking, hiking, and camping are some of my favorite activities. I am excited to be moving to a city on the water as a lifelong dream of mine has been to learn how to sail, and I am hoping to get that opportunity in Baltimore! I also enjoy playing pool and exploring local craft breweries. I am very excited to explore Baltimore over the next few years!

I’m an Oklahoma native growing up in a town called Moore, most famous for the tornado activity. I completed my undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner). During this time, I met my husband who started his own journey to the East coast, calling Virginia and DC his new home. So naturally, I am ready to call this area my home as well.
Emphasis on family and community has always been stressed my whole life. Coming from a large, diverse family and growing up seeing my community recover from extremely tough times, I always had the desire to give back, look out for, and serve others. This strongly influenced my future field in medicine. There is no better sense of connection to others and community than Family Medicine.
During my time in medical school, I discovered my passion for providing care to refugee, immigrant and inner-city underserved communities. I see myself in the future practicing full-scope family medicine across the world and in the MD/VA/DC area. I want to continue the family medicine principle of community. Medstar Family Medicine provided both of those opportunities and I felt right at home. I am very excited to start my next journey in Baltimore and the MedStar family.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring national parks and all that nature has to offer, from plants to wildlife. I also like to bake and cook, often trying to recreate foods I see on cooking shows. My newest hobby is learning piano, something that is challenging but very rewarding. I can’t wait to discover all Baltimore and Maryland have to offer!
Crystal Pristell, D.O.
Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine
Seton Hall University
Originally from Florham Park, NJ, I was drawn to medicine at an early age having a mother diagnosed with cancer. But it wasn't until I fell in love with serving others through community service that I longed to become a doctor. Although I took the long route getting a master's degree and working for a few years in research, I applied to medical school on my two-hour commute to and from New York.
As a medical student at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine in Cleveland, OH, I became very passionate about helping underserved populations. While serving in leadership roles in the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) and the Student Government Association (SGA), I became enthusiastic about homeless medicine and community outreach. These experiences fostered an interest in racial and ethnic disparities in medicine. I'm invested in understanding how social determinants of health and systemic problems affect patient health outcomes.
After medical school, I am excited for a new adventure in Baltimore, MD at the MedStar Franklin Square Family Medicine Program. I am looking forward to be a part of this vibrant and diverse patient population. I hope to become an advocate for patients integrating research, health policy, and community service in my practice of medicine.
Martine Randolph, M.D.
I grew up moving between West to East Africa and spent the better part of my childhood in Nairobi, Kenya. I wanted to work in international affairs and moved to Washington, DC to attend Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. After graduation, I worked as a Peace Corps Volunteer, co-teaching high school English in Indonesia. Towards the end of my service, I realized I wanted to continue working with people. Having bypassed all science requirements in college, I enrolled in a post-bac program at Bryn Mawr College before moving up to Boston for medical school.
I count myself very fortunate to have started my medical training at Boston Medical Center. Its singular mission to provide exceptional care without exception is the perfect description of what calls me as a physician, and why I chose Family Medicine in particular. When I came to interview at Franklin Square, I knew it was the place that matched me as a learner and would mold me into the physician who can put that type of mission into practice.
I am returning to the DMV area with my fiancé, after having met him on our freshman year floor over a decade ago. We are very excited to finally be in the same place to get a puppy!
Sarah Robinson, D.O.
Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine
I am a Buffalo, New York native, growing up south of the city in a small ski town called Ellicottville. I attended Liberty University where I majored in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and had the opportunity to play for their NCAA Division I women’s soccer program. After graduating, I continued my education at Liberty where I pursued a master’s in Biomedical Sciences and then attended Liberty University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
I come from a long line of teachers and nurses, starting with my grandmother who obtained her nursing degree at 50 years old after raising eight children. Therefore, the love for medicine and altruism was instilled in me. I enjoy how family medicine cultivates relationships with patients while providing diverse training in multiple specialties. I am thrilled to continue my education at MedStar Franklin Square for residency. It was during my clinical rotations and interview process where I fell in love with how their robust training allows residents to pursue their area of interest while receiving tremendous support along the way.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy being active, getting out in nature, boating, traveling and spending time with family and friends. I fell in love with skiing at a very young age growing up with the slopes within walking distance. This provided the opportunity to train and compete in alpine ski racing. I would say it is more than a hobby, but a lifestyle for my family. Sports have always been a big part of my life, whether on the field/slopes or cheering on the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres. Go Bills!

Michael Harding, M.D.
Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
Brigham Young University
I grew up in Bethesda and am a proud Marylander. While I’ve always wanted to become a physician, it was during a two-year service mission to the West African nations of Togo and Benin that I became passionate about care of the underserved and public health.
After graduating from Brigham Young University with a degree in Public Health, I accepted a commission as an officer in the U.S. Public Health Service and attended the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences for medical school. My position there was sponsored by the Indian Health Service, so upon completion of training, I will work in a hospital and/or clinic that serves American Indian/Alaska Native populations.
I chose the combined Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine Program at MedStar Franklin Square and Johns Hopkins because it will provide me opportunities to better understand social determinants of health, health disparities, and community-based interventions. This training will allow me to both provide excellent, patient-centered care as well as effect change on a larger level.
When I’m not working, I enjoy rock climbing, whitewater kayaking on the Potomac River, hiking, and playing guitar.
