  • If I wasn't a doctor, I'd be...

    a death scene investigator/crime scene technician

  • My interests/hobbies outside of medicine are...

    hiking, biking, sewing, playing musical instruments, nerdy D&D style board/card games

  • On the weekends I'm usually

    spending time with the family. During the summer we’ve been biking a lot and getting to know the parks and libraries with the kids.

  • In South Dakota, I'm hoping to visit...

    the Black Hills.

  • My favorite thing to do in Sioux Falls is...

    biking while the weather is great!

  • I chose this program...

    for the personal focus on forensic pathology and autopsy medicine with a strong track record of good fellowships. Family friendly program. Cost of living in the area.

  • What do you get/benefit from by choosing this program over another, similar program?

    Many other places don’t focus on autopsy right at the beginning or make residents share autopsies. At USD, I know I will receive the training I want to get me the fellowship I want and feel like I am ready to jump right in from the start of my fellowship.

  • What's the best perk of this program?

    Free breakfast, lunch, and snacks, plus an allowance for evenings/weekends.

  • What's one thing you want a prospective resident to know about this program?

    We are a group of residents that really care about helping each other out. No one gets left behind.
