My Backstory in Brief:
I was born and raised in a small colonial town in Southern New Jersey called Haddonfield and considered myself a Philadephian growing up with a love of all sports and Philly sports teams (don't hate me). I spent my youth as a tom boy, climbing trees, playing touch football, kick-the-can, jail-break, which developed into a love of all things active into my college years at Boston College. At BC, I was a Neuro-Psychiatry and Italian Studies major (with the added bonus of living in Florence, Italy for a year), where I caught the travel bug and passion for city life. Medical School was 4 years at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, with my clinical time spent living in Center City Philadelphia and working at Cooper Hospital Trauma Center, giving me my first eye opening introduction into Emergency Medicine. My love of travel pulled me to Phoenix, Arizona for Intern year in Internal Medicine, then I completed the remainder of my residency at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, which back then was a 2,3,4 program. Emergency Medicine and living in New York City became two of the things I couldn't imagine myself not doing, and hence I have been in NYC and working at Elmhurst Hospital's Department of Emergency Medicine, Mount Sinai's affiliate, since residency.
