Undergrad: University of North Carolina, Charlotte
Activities/Hobbies: Cooking, traveling, soccer, field hockey, Carolina basketball

Why Hopkins: The most important advice I received before residency interviews started was to go with my gut feeling when deciding on a program. This was immediately true for Hopkins - from the phone call I received before my interview day asking if I needed a ride from the airport/to the interview dinner to the genuine sense of comraderie I felt between the residents, faculty and staff. In addition to my gut feeling, Hopkins was to me, the most well rounded programs with numerous opportunities available for research, global health and medical education.
