Your goal as an EMRA leader: To empower students in their pursuit of a career in emergency medicine!

Why serve as an EMRA leader?
EMRA is an amazing organization that offers fantastic opportunities for learning, mentorship, and leadership! EMRA serves as a backbone for so many efforts and initiatives in both emergency medicine and education. Being part of this team has afforded me the ability to truly impact the next generation of physicians, while advocating for my peers and colleagues.

If I weren't an emergency physician, I would be: Great question! I'd probably look to health advocacy with an emphasis on systematic change to help empower others to achieve their health goals.

What's on your playlist?
John Butler, Citizen Cope, and Sia. Although I really listen to just about anything!
