A little about myself. . .

I was born in Amarillo, TX and spent my childhood in Plano, TX (a suburb of Dallas). My family and I moved to Maryland when I was entering high school, and I’ve been in Maryland ever since. After high school, I began working for an insurance firm – first in finance, then actuarial, and finally in life underwriting. While working full time, I attended the University of Maryland part time and in the evenings, and graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration and a minor in Finance. I loved underwriting, but I had always wanted to pursue a career in medicine. With some incredible mentorship and family support, I soon began taking post-baccalaureate classes at UMD’s Science in the Evening program. After spending the better part of a decade in insurance, I was ecstatic to start my new journey in medicine at UMD School of Medicine.

I began my 3rd year rotations in Internal Medicine and thought I would choose this path for residency. However, my last rotation of the year was pediatrics and I absolutely fell in love. I knew that I would not be happy if I couldn’t treat children as well as adults, and chose to apply for residency in Med/Peds. I have loved getting to know my Med/Peds co-interns as well as my new Internal Medicine family and Pediatrics family over the past couple of weeks, and look forward to the next four years at UMMC. I am considering extending my education into fellowship, and am interested in combined adult/pediatric gastroenterology.

When I’m not in the hospital, I can be found swimming, playing with my dogs (my maltipoos – Nico and Sophia), and/or surrounded by family. My parents still live in Maryland, and I love having them nearby. I also have two brothers; an older brother and a younger brother, and while we are all 7 years apart, we are extremely close. Additionally, I have a huge extended Greek family (my in-laws), so it’s never a dull moment at my house.

Kathryn Tobin, MDKathryn Tobin, M.D.
Undergraduate: The Ohio State University
Medical School: University of Toledo College of Medicine

A little about myself. . .

I grew up outside of Cleveland, OH before attending The Ohio State University for college.  I remained in Ohio for medical school at the University of Toledo College of Medicine.  While in medical school, I traveled to Honduras and Guatemala for medical missions to provide healthcare to underserved communities.  In my free time, I love spending time with friends, trying new restaurants, traveling, and playing with my dog, who I recently rescued from a shelter!

I love working with patients of all ages, from birth to old age, and enjoy the complexity of both childhood diseases that continue into adulthood and diseases now seen in children that were previously considered to only affect adults.  This influenced my decision to pursue the combined program of Internal Medicine/Pediatrics.  I have many interests, including primary care, transitional care, hematology/oncology, and global health – so I’m excited to see where my career will take me! I matched at the University of Maryland with my fiancé, who is completing a Psychiatry residency, and we are excited to explore Baltimore as we make it our new home!


Emily Xiao, MDEmily Xiao, M.D.
Undergraduate: University of California, Santa Barbara
Medical School: Albany Medical College

A little about myself. . .

I was born in La Habra, California. As a child, my family was continually on the move, traveling to live in California, Papua New Guinea, Australia and Saudi Arabia. Although I was born in the U.S., I call Saudi Arabia home, as my family has resided there since 2000. Growing up, I was fortunate to meet and work with people of all ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. At the age of fifteen, I moved back to California to attend boarding school in Santa Barbara, California. I received my undergraduate degree from University of California, Santa Barbara studying Biological Sciences and English Literature. After graduating, I spent a year working for United Cerebral Palsy, doing research in evolutionary genetics, and working as a medical assistant. I then moved to New York for my medical degree at Albany Medical College, where I continued to work with underserved communities and helped redesign a health screenings clinic. In Albany, I developed a deep appreciation for the seasons and frequented the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains, hiking/backpacking, kayaking, and camping. While I have always wanted to be a pediatrician, I developed an interest in adult disease that stems from childhood illness, global health, and pediatric cardiology. I happily matched to Med-Peds at Maryland and am excited to be reunited with my brother who lives in Baltimore.

In my free time, I am happiest when I am outdoors, playing water polo or swimming, creating new recipes, reading about marine biology, and exploring new places.
