What drew you to CWFMR and/or Yakima? :
I’m in the Ellensburg rural program. I fell in love with the mountains here and wanted to have an escape on my days off to hike and enjoy nature.
strong OB, inpatient, and ambulatory medicine training in an unopposed community setting with faculty and staff who were incredibly welcoming from the very start.
Perfecting and sharing homebrew concoctions, growing my garden full of veggies, hops, and grapes, tending my jungle of houseplants, discovering hole-in-the wall eateries, and spoiling my very sassy, very fluffy cats Kismet and Karma.
