Q: Why did you choose podiatry?
A: Podiatry kind of came up on me very randomly. I was shadowing an anesthesiologist who was covering multiple cases until one day a doctor, who I thought was an ortho, did an incredible tri malleolar fracture case. The anesthesiologist introduced me to him and the rest was history. I feel very fortunate to have been introduced to podiatry and it has opened so many more doors for me than I could ever imagine.

Q: You're a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
A: Rose gold, because there’s nothing fresher.

Q: What is your favorite vacation destination?
A: Hmmm that’s a tough one, but New York. From the food to the shopping to the scene it doesn’t get better.

Q: What is your favorite social media platform and why?
A: I’d say Instagram for sure. It used to be just pictures and stuff but now I get all my news and sports updates from there too. It’s truly growing as a platform and expanding its utility each and every day.

Q: Finish this sentence, "People would be surprised to learn that I..."
A: ...played D2 basketball in undergrad and get buckets.
