What are your Clinical & Research Interests?
My primary interests are clinical SRS and brachytherapy

Why did you choose to come to UW
I love living in Madison, and the people in the department are wonderful; I really felt like I connected with the program in my interview. The work-life balance here is great, and I knew this program would be able to prepare me well for my future career.

Favorite part of residency, favorite rotation, or favorite thing about the program?
There is a lot to love about our residency, but so far, I absolutely loved the time I spent on my brachytherapy rotation. Getting to work in the clinic hands-on and work alongside the MDs and brachy physicists was both enjoyable and rewarding. You learn so much and get to contribute to the clinic (plus I am definitely a morning person!).

Favorite thing to do in Madison?
I love the bike trails in Madison. The city is so bike friendly, and it is easy to get around; I sometimes like to ride my bike to work when the weather is nice, and for a good workout, it is fun to ride the lake loop around Monona.

Fun fact about yourself or things you like to do for fun?
Believe it or not, I love falconry and ballroom dance! I am at my happiest when I am working with the red-tailed hawk, and I’ve even grown fond of the turkey vulture (which you will see a lot of in Wisconsin!). While I am not a falconer, I volunteered for a non-profit that goes to schools and public events to teach kids about birds of prey.
