Why did you choose UA Family Medicine?    
Best interview experience of any place--instantly made me feel like family.  Also, you get an incredible breadth of training in the program, which made me feel like I would be well prepared after residency.
What is your favorite thing about living in Tucson?    
The mountains since I missed them in Nebraska for medical school
What are your interests or hobbies outside of medicine?    
Fly fishing, yoga, concerts, and cheese (it has to be on all food I eat)
What are your professional interests within Medicine?     
My family is from the southwest and thus I have always wanted to live in the southwest and work with native populations, especially in the rural setting.
Favorite Way to spend a day off?    
Rock climbing with other residents, and then pool volleyball at Amy's house
