About

My name is Elizabeth and I’m a third-year pediatrics resident at the University of Chicago. I have been drawn to both primary and critical care since early on in medical school, so I’m combining my passions and will be pursuing fellowship in neonatology and plan to also see patients as their primary pediatrician in a complex/high risk follow up clinic as an attending. I’m interested in underserved population medicine, healthcare delivery and quality improvement, patient advocacy, and the unique physiology of medically complex tiny humans.

I have a dog named Auggie who I love more than anything in the entire world! I also love Chicago architecture and history, reading for leisure and for knowledge, good restaurants, and interior design concepts.
