What interested you most in UNMC?:

The two month rural rotation stood out and drew my initial interest, and the culture of the program sealed the deal.

What was your first job?

Not my first job, but I have worked in cybersecurity.

What is the furthest you've traveled from Omaha?:

I lived in Europe as a child.

Career aspirations: 

Full spectrum care, ideally somewhere where there are no doctors or not enough doctors.

If you couldn't work in medicine, what would you do?:

Realistically, I would probably work in software development.

If you only had one day in Nebraska, what would you do?:

Statistically speaking, I would probably be working at UNMC!

Most fond residency experience or memory up to this point?:

It's hard to pick a single memory, but one thing I have really enjoyed has been the wilderness medicine weekends, where we camp out, learn/teach/practice wilderness medicine topics, prepare and eat meals together, and enjoy the outdoors.
