Why I chose Pine Rest: I had never been to Grand Rapids prior to my interview day. However, I was very impressed with the way the program treated their residents and the focus on exceptional psychiatric care with an exposure to such a wide variety of services within the Pine Rest system. The residents in the program seemed happy and I have appreciated the program’s emphasis on creating a positive environment to learn and grow as psychiatrists.

Other Interests: I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside and exploring nature, and eating ice cream!
