I’m from Cincinnati, Ohio, and attended WashU for undergrad, where I studied English and Biology. In my free time, I enjoy playing with dogs, trying out new restaurants, traveling, and reading.

I grew up in Shanghai, China, went to Harvard for undergrad, and spent a gap year in New York before starting medical school at WashU. I love watching movies, visiting museums, and spending a free afternoon in Forest Park on a nice day.
