Hobbies and Interest: Gardening: Growing up in Wisconsin, partially on a farm, I’ve always loved gardening. In Philadelphia, I now tend a more urban garden. Hiking: I grew up with a strong love for the outdoors and take every opportunity to hike, including a 3 month backpacking trip in China and India just before starting medical school. Scuba Diving: I studied marine biology in college and keep my love of the ocean alive through diving. Piano: I’ve been playing since the age of 10 and still practice weekly.
