Hometown: Madison, WI About me: I went to undergrad at UW-Madison, med school at University of Illinois-Chicago. I love languages (I speak French fluently, Spanish pretty well and some Swahili), cooking (all types of cuisine), running, African dance and I’m obsessed with Costco. As a child, I had a a strange obsession with Hulk Hogan (we all went through that phase, right?) Why I chose UCSD: I had a really good feeling after my interview here and fell in love with San Diego. I was born in Irvine and then my family moved to Wisconsin, but we always wanted to come back to Cali, so here I am! I also am interested in global health and wanted to continue to pursue my interests at an institution with global health/policy opportunities for residents. Favorite place: Balboa Park.
