What drew you to WashU?

I came to WashU for undergraduate, and I absolutely loved it here. I had a lot of activities in St. Louis that I participated in, and there was all the research opportunities I could have asked for. I’m extremely happy to be back, and enjoying my intern year immensely already. WashU gives me everything I could ask for at work and outside of it.

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

My favorite part about living in St. Louis is the proximity to my old kung fu school. I went there all the time during college, and it’s really nice to be back after medical school. The short drive helps a lot to keep it up during residency.
