My self-summary
*** I will be out of the country with limited email access from Nov 8 - 23. Look forward to hearing from you when I get back ***

Born and raised in NYC with an attachment to the fine green mountain state of Vermont. I'm a city girl who loves her mountains. There have been a few bouts to Nashville, South Africa, Kenya, and Costa Rica in there as well. Boston seems to be a very good fit right now (as much as I loved living in Nashville, it was, at times, just as foreign as Kenya to me). I went to Argentina last year and I left my heart in Mendoza... Likes: the great outdoors, eggs, laughter, trying new things, kids, and traveling. Dislikes: intestinal parasites, smoking, cream cheese, and people who take themselves too seriously.

If I weren't a doctor, I would write and illustrate children's books.
What I’m doing with my life
I am taking two years to do some clinical research in the midst of my residency. It's a nice break and a good change of pace. The eventual goal is to be working with children full time with a bit of international health thrown into the mix as well. Although a lot of my research has an international focus that requires me to make some trips to Uganda, Liberia and the like, I will mostly be staying in Boston and enjoying the good life... speaking of which... In my spare time, I like to have fun, be creative, and stay active.
I’m really good at
laughing, listening, being silly, adventuring, traveling, cooking/baking, drawing/painting, sports and exercise, being outside, meeting new people, trying new things

All music, except heavy metal. Bonus points for live music.

Currently reading The Great Escape (nonfiction), Humans (fiction) and The NewYorker (delightfully both)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything from how to have an impact on the world... to how to make the most of my day to my friends and family to where my next running route will be. Oh, and about checking out that new restaurant...
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, trying to find live music, or in the car on my way to VT or some other place for a change of scenery
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a little girl, my older sister tormented me with the nickname "lettuce butt" due to my mom's propensity to dress me in swim suits covered in ruffles. To this day I have what I think is a healthy aversion to frilly clothing. period.
You should message me if
