Why I chose Saint Joseph: I decided to strike out of my home state of Louisiana for residency. I was looking for programs with multiple community projects and an open mind toward complementary and alternative medicines, while providing satisfactory benefits. More convincing, I was impressed by the overall calm disposition of every resident I had met.

Favorite place or activity in Chicago: Trying to figure out Chicago's preoccupation with tater tots over french fries, mac and cheese, and buffalo wings.

If I had not gone into medicine what I would be doing now: I would be trying to break into Show Biz. If you look closely, you may recognize a familiar face in the next Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis movie.
