Emily grew up in California, Papua New Guinea, Australia, and Saudi Arabia. While she had always dreamed of being a pediatrician, in medical school, she developed an interest in adult disease that stems from childhood illness. She happily matched into Med-Peds at Maryland (where her brother also lives!). Outside of the hospital, Emily is an avid outdoors enthusiast and likes to create new recipes, play water polo, read about marine biology, and explore new places.
