What drew you to WashU?

I love the facilities here and the vast diversity in medical conditions we see. If you don’t know what to do with a patient, send them to Barnes.

What is your favorite part about living in St. Louis?

Taking COVID-19 out of the picture, there are great restaurants and lots of fun things to do. I love Union Station, going to Cardinals games, and the Botanical Gardens. I’m obsessed with Pasteria and Mission Taco. I also love brunch at Café Osage and Mudd House.
