Beatrice Leverett, M.D.
Medical School: University of Washington School of Medicine
I grew up in Fairfax, VA, but moved to Seattle, WA when I was eighteen and spent nearly ten wonderful years there. I attended both college and medical school at the University of Washington. During college, I spent four years working as an emergency department scribe, where I quickly grew to love the dynamic and fast-paced field of emergency medicine. However, I also worked as an assistant preschool teacher and a babysitter, and developed a passion for working with and caring for children that persisted as I completed my medical education. The University of Maryland’s combined residency program in emergency medicine and pediatrics is the perfect opportunity for me to blend these overlapping areas of interest. Additionally, I am very interested in policy and advocacy, and believe that my combined training will prepare me to serve as a strong advocate for vulnerable populations of all ages.
When I am not working, I enjoy reading, writing, hiking, and baking. I am also an avid runner, and hope to run the Baltimore marathon this fall! Most of all, I love spending time with my husband, my seven-year-old stepson, and my extremely large and cuddly orange cat.
