Bio: I have been living in St. Louis for four years now and I have grown to love the city! There is so much to do in St. Louis and a lot of it is free or super cheap – including the zoo, science center, botanical gardens, parks, etc. My husband also works at Barnes-Jewish hospital and we live nearby in South City. We have two Australian shepherds and a new baby girl who was born during my first year of fellowship. Outside of work we enjoy walking in the park, spending time with family and friends and enjoying all the great food (and beer) that this city has to offer!
