I was born and raised in Rochester, NY. I graduated from the University of Rochester with an undergraduate degree in biology and history in 2008. I graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine in 2013, which included a year in London, U.K. and Toronto, Canada studying the history of universal healthcare. I also completed the Medical Education Pathway, a two year program which provided additional training for medical students interested in a career in medical education. I completed internal medicine residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, IL in 2016, with a research focus in advanced care planning in underserved populations. I completed a palliative care fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD in 2017, with a research focus in immunotherapy toxicity as well as advanced care planning in patients living with HIV.
