Where are you from? Pittsburgh, PA
How long have you lived in the area? 9 Months!
What are three words your friends would use to describe you? Honest (sometimes brutally), enthusiastic, determined.
Why do you run? Running gives me something to focus on outside of grad school which is nice. I also love Carrboro and running gives me an excuse to explore.
Why did you decide to join the Station Pub Run? I was encouraged by other med students. I had never run before joining Station Pub Run and I love it!
What is your favorite thing about the Station Pub Run? Med school can be pretty socially isolating and I love meeting people outside of school.
Describe the most recent (appropriate 🙂 ) photo you took with your phone: My boyfriend and I went hiking at Hanging Rock. He brought along a water filtration system for a three mile hike so I took a picture of him filling up his fancy filtering water bottle in the stream to make fun of him.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received, and who gave it to you? “If there’s only one person in your life who’s a jerk, they are probably a jerk. If everyone in your life is a jerk, you are probably a jerk.” - I don’t remember who told me this
If you could have any talent or skill in the entire world, without needing to practice and money was no limitation, what would it be? I would be really good at skiing. Skiing looks fun but it’s expensive and hard to get to a place where you can do stuff without fear of death.
Tell us something about yourself that not many people know: Not many people in Pub Run know that I do stand up comedy and perform with Eyes Up Here comedy!
What is something you have done recently, or are about to do, that you are proud of? I ran my first half marathon!
