Favorite place/activity in Lexington is .... either drinking a beer with friends at Blue Stallion Brewery or taking my dogs on a walk at the Arboretum.
One thing that surprised me about Lexington KY in general is .... the large number of local breweries, coffee shops, and restaurants for a city of this size. Spalding's Bakery has the best donuts in the world. In addition to the famed Bourbon Trail, we have twelve breweries on the Brewgrass Trail.
One aspect that makes UK Peds special is .... our amazing, diverse, and encouraging team of residents! I love that we have residents in multiple different programs including categorical pediatrics, med peds, child neuro, and triple board. Everyone brings a unique perspective to the table, but we all come together as one big UK Peds family!
One think I love about pediatrics is .... how resilient children can be in the face of illness.
I grew up in .... Johns Creek, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.
I went to medical school at University of Kentucky College of Medicine and earned a MD degree.
