Your goal as an EMRA leader: My goal is to work towards developing resources and creating opportunities to help residents pursue their passions and career interests.

Why serve on an EMRA committee?
The chance to work with an active body of motivated residents united by our love of this profession is an incredible opportunity.

If I weren't an emergency physician, I would be: A veterinarian. It is both intellectually challenging and requires a degree of patience and compassion arguably beyond what our job already requires.
