Background:

Susan grew up in Novi, Michigan and completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, where she majored in chemistry. She became interested in clinical medicine after conducting research in neurosurgery and cardiology. While attending medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, she found her passion in caring for cardiology patients. Susan continued her training at Vanderbilt University and explored the various fields within cardiology in more depth through research. Currently, she is most interested in interventional cardiology and studying the role and outcomes of interventions in coronary artery disease. In her spare time, Susan enjoys baking, cooking, hiking, and traveling. Susan is excited to start fellowship at the University of Washington and explore everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer!
