Fellow Perspective

Tell us briefly about your background before fellowship?
I am originally from Findlay, Ohio. I went to the University of Notre Dame for undergrad and Weill Cornell Medicine for medical school. I came to Duke for Internal Medicine Residency and have loved the Durham/triangle area ever since.

What are your career plans in cardiology?
I plan on a career in academic cardiology with a specific focus on medical education. Within Cardiology, I am interest in advance heart failure and critical care.

Why did you choose Duke for your fellowship training?
I chose Duke for the unique combination of general and advance clinical cardiology, great mentorship and well-funded research. Cardiology leadership are invested in your learning and treat you as an equal member of the department.

What advice might you offer residents looking at fellowship programs?
If you have prior residents who are now fellows at the program you are interested in, they are a wonderful resource about a program. Most fellows tend to be open and honest about the advantages/disadvantages of their program.

What do you enjoy doing in the Triangle area outside of work?
I enjoy hanging with friends and staying active. I love soccer, golf and basketball. As with most Notre Dame graduates, I love watching the Irish on Saturdays.
