Favorite place/activity in Lexington is .... Disc Golf - Multiple Courses (Jacobson Park, Veterans Park, Shillito Park).
One thing that surprised me about Lexington KY in general is .... Options for activities: Arboretum, Parks - Including Disc Golf and Dog Parks, Kentucky Theater - Old style theater with drinks and special showings, nearby hiking - Red River Gorge and Raven for example, Keeneland, Red Mile Race Track, Lexington Legends Games, UK Basketball and Football, Thriller Zombie Walk, West 6th Running group, Lexington Sports and Social Leagues (Kickball, dodgeball, basketball, etc) and more (I could go on for a while).
One aspect that makes UK Peds special is .... We are a close group. UK is more than large enough to have the specialties you want, the exposure you need and the opportunities that are provided, all while having a group where you know everyone and you meet everyone early and often. We work together but we socialize together. We exist as a group at the hospital and outside of it as well.
One think I love about pediatrics is .... Working with kids. I'm more or less a child at times myself (My Fiance can attest) and I like to bring that into a career where my personality doesn't have to hold me back. I can act like that, *occasionally, but still provide a dearly needed service.
I grew up in .... Born in Greeley, Colorado but since I was 5 years old lived in a Hodgenville, Kentucky.
I went to medical school at University of Kentucky College of Medicine and earned a MD degree.
