Chief Residents

I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but attended college at Seattle Pacific University in Seattle, WA and medical school at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, CA. My husband and I couples matched after a long country-wide interview trail. Together we have two rambunctious and loving sons, ages 2 & 5 years. The OU residency program stood out in my heart and mind because the people demonstrated a genuine passion in developing their residents not only as physician scientists, but also as compassionate, empathetic leaders. Now after 3 years of rigorous training, I feel just as empowered to treat the person, as I do to treat the disease.

I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  I love music and outside of medicine that is my passion.  I have been in Oklahoma for all of my education, and chose to pursue residency here as well.  To put it simply, the people and faculty here are amazing.  This is a free-standing hospital that harbors an environment ideal for  training.  You become very close to your colleagues, and while graduating residents sometimes venture to other places they will be your best friends for life!  I am truly grateful I chose to stay in Oklahoma for medical school and residency.  I look forward to working this year with Rachael as a chief resident.
