Interests and Career Goals

My interests are in the intersection of psychiatry and the criminal justice system, serious mental illness, and in treatment of addiction. My career goals, broadly are to fortify the public safety net.

Favorite Pastimes

Running, reading, backpacking, brewing kombucha, and anthropomorphizing my cat, Zeke.

Strengths of the Program

I was attracted to Duke because I knew I would get excellent training in a variety of areas and got the sense (even virtually) that the program leadership is dynamic and cares for its residents. Living in the triangle is a huge bonus and offers everything one could ask for.
