Why did you choose Anesthesiology?
I chose anesthesiology because I wanted to work in a field of medicine that balances critical thinking with hands-on life-saving procedures.  Every day, you can appreciate how your decisions instantaneously alter patient physiology and affect their outcome.  Anesthesiology tests your knowledge and performance under pressure, which makes it an exciting and challenging career choice!

Where do you live in Chicago (area of the city) and if you like that area, why?
I live in downtown Chicago because I want to be in the heart of the city. Everything you could want is within walking distance and the commute to work is very reasonable.
