WashU/St. Louis Children’s Hospital immediately stood out to me. I spoke with attendings, current fellows, and graduates. Everyone I spoke with responded with vibrant positivity and praise for the program. Complex cases, career development, and outstanding training in regional anesthesia were among the many reported strengths of the program. Most of all, a supportive and collegiate environment was consistently mentioned.

Since starting this fellowship, I have been pleased to find all of my expectations met and exceeded. The faculty are especially welcoming and foster an extremely motivating and enjoyable work environment. A lot of work goes in daily to ensure fellows are assigned the most complex cases for the day. Feedback and evaluation are taken very seriously, and I have already made great strides in my practice in such a short amount of time. In addition, the department makes a point to get to know everyone and faculty host events throughout the year for everyone to get together.

Outside of work, St. Louis has been a hidden gem. There are many beautiful trails for running, biking, hiking, and being outside. I love walking my dog and am grateful to live in such a dog-friendly place! If you’re into trying new restaurants, St. Louis has plenty of delicious options. The city has many of the big city activities, but with a small city feel, and it’s been a great experience living here.

Staying at St. Louis Children’s Hospital for fellowship was an easy decision for me. As a residency graduate of WashU, I felt confident I would receive the best clinical training and mentorship by staying in St. Louis. My opportunities to perform fellow index cases even as a resident demonstrated that SLCH has not only an abundance and variety of cases but also the appropriate support to learn and grow. I have been lucky enough to develop mentor relationships with SLCH faculty which I know will last far beyond residency, and it has been a rewarding transition to remain with these teachers as a fellow.

Outside of the hospital walls, St. Louis is an ideal place to call home. It’s convenient and affordable to purchase a home, which my husband and I did in 2019; we now have a one-year-old Labrador and close friends throughout our neighborhood. We love taking our dog to the local park, walking to restaurants in downtown Clayton, and hosting dinners (mostly taco nights) for our friends.

Having graduated from residency from WashU, I chose to stay for fellowship due to the wonderful experience I had during residency. The faculty, co-fellows, acuity, wide variety of cases made it all worth it! Outside of work, I am a foodie who loves trying new restaurants/different cuisines, traveling, watching movies, and spending time with friends/family.

I chose WashU for my training in anesthesiology because the institutional culture of excellence was unparalleled. The department’s intellectually rich environment struck me as one that would fundamentally shape and nurture my growth as a clinician and scientist. WashU is a special place, which is why I continue to devote my clinical and scientific career to it.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, and trying new food.
