PGY-4/Child Fellow

Undergrad: St. Lawrence University 

Medical School: SUNY Upstate Medical University

Academic Interests: child and adolescent psychiatry, college mental health, women’s mental health, nutritional psychiatry, medical education reform, advocacy

Hobbies: hiking, visiting the National Parks, spending time with my rescue cat, tennis, and baking.

Why UMass: One of the many reasons why I chose UMass was because of the unique child psychiatry track. This track offers special faculty mentorship in child psychiatry, allows residents to rotate in pediatric subspecialties (peds neuro, genetics, adolescent medicine, etc), and guarantees a fellowship position in child and adolescent psychiatry.  

Why Worcester: I appreciate that Worcester is conveniently located close to Boston, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city. As someone that appreciates nature, I enjoy going to the local botanical garden and hiking in the beautiful State and National Parks of New England.
