Why did I choose to complete a residency?
I decided to pursue residency training to better serve my patients, regardless of the practice area that I choose to work in post-residency. Prior to starting residency I had about 10 years of retail experience and was conflicted between completing a residency versus continuing my career in the community setting. I also had many clinical interests including pediatrics, critical care, ambulatory care, and infectious diseases. I felt that completing at least one year of residency would expand my clinical knowledge and allow me to obtain a variety of patient care experiences. During my PGY-1 year I really enjoyed my pediatric rotations and decided to complete a PGY-2 in Pediatrics here at St. Joseph’s Hospital!

Why did I choose St. Joseph’s at BayCare?
I chose St. Joseph’s Hospital for the variety of clinical experiences, as well as the positive BayCare culture. During my interview for PGY-1, I connected with the preceptors, residents, and residency program director and knew St. Joseph’s Hospital would be a great fit for me! Throughout my PGY-1 and PGY-2 I have been able to experience many unique practice areas including Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care, Women’s Health, Nutrition Support, and Hematology-Oncology, among others. I feel very fortunate for all of the opportunities I’ve been awarded at St. Joseph’s Hospital during my residency!
