Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University
Yale University

Born in Southeastern Pennsylvania, I am a proud Philadelphian and an avid fan of the Philadelphia Eagles. I attended college at Yale University where I majored in Environmental Studies and concentrated in Food and Agriculture. After college, I got a master’s degree in Food Studies at New York University. While in this program, I realized my interest in food was primarily from a health perspective, so I decided I wanted to become a physician and incorporate what I had learned into my practice. After completing a post-baccalaureate program at the University of Pennsylvania, I attended Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University. During medical school, I chose to take an extra year to complete Jefferson’s Master of Public Health program, so I could learn more about the many social factors that impact my patients’ health. 

I chose to pursue Family Medicine because of the dedication to the community, the opportunity to care for the entire family, and the ability to build life-long relationships with my patients. Within Family Medicine, I am passionate about all things that relate to overall well-being, especially food – I even considered going to culinary school instead of college at one point. I believe that proper nutrition is one of the foundations of good health, and I am excited to help my patients incorporate healthy choices through education and improved access.

I am so excited to train at MedStar Franklin Square! I’m moving to Maryland with my husband, Tom, who will be completing his Anesthesia training at Walter Reed, and our dog, Riley. Outside of medicine, I love traveling, practicing yoga, cooking, and baking, and watching Disney movies.
