About Me

After earning my BA in Neuroscience and Economics from Middlebury College, I completed a Fellowship in Functional Neuroimaging at Duke University in the Huettel Laboratory.

I'm a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh-Carnegie Mellon University Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), where I investigated the effects of chronic stress and mindfulness training interventions on brain structure, function, and human performance. I earned my PhD in Neuroscience in 2015 while in the Health and Human Performance Laboratory (found here), with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience from the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition, a joint venture of Pitt-CMU, and then completed my MD. After an enjoyable term as a visiting professor at my alma mater, Middlebury College, I'm now back in the clinical world.

I'm currently working as an Emergency Medicine physician, with additional involvement in physician wellness research & side projects in human performance. I frequently speak to various audiences on stress, mindfulness, health & human performance.

My athletic career has taken a meandering path, but I've found a home in gravel cycling in the past couple years and haven't looked back. I'm a "recovering triathlete" (who still jumps into triathlon in distances from sprint to 70.3 when the mood strikes), former road racer at the 5k to half marathon distance, went through a long-distance open water swimming phase completing swims of 5k to 10 miles (and still love the water), and have now trended off-road to the occasional trail run and cycling endurance races (which somehow keep getting longer and longer). I'm excited to have been representing an awesome women's running/triathlon/cycling company as a member of the SOAS Racing Team for the past 4 years.

Current PRs:
5k: 17:32 (2015)
10k: 38:12 (en route during CUCB 10 Miler, 2015)

  1. It would have been the happiest moment for you,I mean if we have been waiting for something to happen and when it happens we forgot all hardwork and wait for getting that happened.
