Pediatric Emergency Medicine Attending at Children's National Health System
I was born and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland, but with very little knowledge of all things DC. “Crabs and football, that’s what Maryland does”, unfortunately I could only partake in one of those. I grew up with a crab allergy so blue crabs are a make believe creature to me, much like the lochness monster. I decided to take the leap of faith and attend medical school abroad but family and home could not keep me away for too long. Residency took me to New Jersey where I began to cultivate my love for medical education and low tolerance for poor pain control. Did I mention I also learned that I outgrew my crab allergy in NJ! Alas, to the DMV I return! Hopefully to contribute to medical education and quality improvement while feasting on a Maryland blue crab or two.
