    Why did you choose the UAB Pediatric Residency Program?

    The autonomy you get with your training and patient care. And of course, THE PEOPLE!

    Birmingham's Best Food and/or Drink

    My wife and I love to indulge in sweets/dessert. We probably go to Big Spoon Creamery and Hero Doughnuts way too often. Favorite brewery is probably a tie between Back Forty Brewing Company and Good People Brewing Company. Both great spots to hang out with friends and watch sporting events and what not.

    Birmingham Must-See

    I love the outdoors! Oak Mountain State Park and Ruffner Mountain are two of my favorite places to go hiking and just enjoy nature.

    I’m thinking critical care at this point. I definitely want medical education to be part of my career going forward!

    Why did you choose the UAB Pediatric Residency Program?

    You will likely have a moment in residency that stops you. It’ll seem like one of your worst days, whether from a clinical or personal standpoint, and you’ll wonder “how can I get past this?” Maybe it’ll happen more than once. I can tell you from personal experience, in those moments, your co-residents and program leadership will be there with hugs ready. Socially, the people are wonderful during your peaks, but more importantly, they are there to support and trudge with you in your valleys.

    Birmingham's Best Food and/or Drink

    We definitely prefer breweries and restaurants that allow pups, so Avondale and Carrigan's Beer Garden are some of our favorites. I’m still currently searching for the best queso in Birmingham.

    Birmingham Must-See

    Moss Rock Preserve and Red Mountain Park. I love hiking with my husband and pups, and there are miles of trails to explore and get lost!

    Why did you choose the UAB Pediatric Residency Program?

    The people! What also makes UAB so unique is the large hospital system tucked away in a small/medium city. It's a blessing to have the opportunity to work at one of the largest pediatric hospitals in the country without living in a massive city. We take care of a variety of patients from all over the Southeast and work with attendings who have trained all over the world.

    Ruffner Mountain has so many great dog-friendly hiking trails with views of the city and surrounding mountains that are hard to beat. If you're willing to take a short (1 hr) trip outside Birmingham, Cheaha Mountain is the place to go - the tallest point in the state with awesome trails.

    Why did you choose the UAB Pediatric Residency Program?

    The camaraderie! In what can be such a difficult profession, it has been comforting to have a sense of support between residents as well as faculty/staff. For example, when you look so exhausted/drained and the market staff gives you a free sandwich out of pity. Hasn’t happened yet but soon.

    Birmingham's Best Food and/or Drink

    I am a big fan of southern cuisine in general. But recently I’ve found myself at the Fish Market a little too much. I’m the guy that warms up fish in the break room. My favorite dish at this particular restaurant is Cioppino (fish stew) - yum. 

    Birmingham Must-See

    My favorite place to visit is the Moss Rock Preserve. Although I’m not what you would consider one with nature, I tend to roll with the adventures just as much as I roll my ankles.
