Past life:

I was a waiter at the Melting Pot during high school and college. Yes, I am a certified fondue master. I also worked at Big Brothers Big Sisters for a couple years. I’ve been class president, bathed on the beaches of Haiti and played a pick up game with Doug Flutie. Life has been pretty good so far.

Academic Interest:

I’m developing a strong interest in academic emergency medicine, critical care and ultrasound. I also hope to get involved in the political arena surrounding health care, health care disparities and emergency department efficiency.

Favorite activities in New Haven:

I love the food, hanging downtown, and any social event that starts out at Harman’s apartment.

Why Yale’s Emergency Medicine Program:

Yale is a springboard for a career in emergency medicine. The academic resources and support truly allows you to find your niche within this high paced field. In addition, Yale’s patient population is amazingly diverse and sick, which is essential to great residency training. Lastly, the relationship between our Attendings, residents and nursing staff is amazing. Our emergency department really is an extended family.
