An intro: I grew up in Chicago, came to California for college, and don't plan to leave any time soon. I love to be outside doing active things, especially cycling. I used to race in college, and rode my bike across the U. S. several years ago. I finished my Pediatrics Residency last year and am now working as a pediatric hospitalist (taking care of newborn babies, and kids who are sick and admitted to the hospital). I love what I do, and am also loving having more free time, now that I'm out of training, to pursue my other interests and spend time with the people I love. Other fun facts: I like farmers markets, crossword puzzles, laughing, traveling, and trying new things. I'm very close to my family, and I'm a fiercely loyal friend. I like to feed people good food. I'm sweet, but I also know what I want and can bring a healthy dose of sass.
