About UMass Worcester: During my residency search I stumbled across UMass Worcester. I was struck by the wonderful balance between a University training program and a rural community continuity site. I stayed because I knew I would never be able to find the breadth, diversity, and strength of a Family Medicine Department elsewhere. UMass is a unique place to be as a family medicine physician in New England and I LOVE IT!
Personal Facts: I have four incredible children with diverse interests, from ballet to cattle shows and a whole lot of sports in between! I love marathon running as well.
