Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
I was born and raised in Boca Raton, Florida. I studied Jewish studies at Stanford University and did medical school at Mount Sinai in New York City. Within psychiatry I am interested in psychodynamic psychiatry, psychiatric formulation, education, and forensic psychiatry. Outside of work I enjoy music, aviation, and traveling. I will be completing a forensic psychiatry fellowship after I graduate from residency.
Amy Blood, MD
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Dr. Blood hails from a long line of non-vampires in a small Southern Illinois town known for having the world's largest ketchup bottle. After receiving a basic education in cat care and maintenance, she attended Northwestern University for undergraduate and medical training. She decided to pursue a residency in psychiatry when she found out about the awesome ratio of sitting:standing time. In her ample free time, she plays board games with her fiancé (husband? are they married yet?), watches YouTube with her cat, is active in an online fitness and wellness community, takes voice lessons, and lives her best vicarious Hufflepuff life in The Sims.
Krista Martinez, MD
Morehouse School of Medicine
Hi! I am originally from what used to be a small town outside of Denver, CO but moved to metro Atlanta in high school. I stuck around to complete undergrad and attended Morehouse School of Medicine before matching to Tufts in Boston. I chose Tufts for the people and the broad range of experiences you get during training. The residents are very supportive of each other and they will be the main people you interact with every day. I love going out with colleagues after work, yoga, and exploring the great neighborhoods around Boston.
Hareesh Pillai, MD
Texas A&M School of Medicine
I was born and raised in Texas, and am living out of the state for the first time. My favorite things about the residency include the friendliness of everyone in the department, the emphasis on patient care, and the willingness of the program to listen to resident feedback and make appropriate changes. Boston is a really fun city to live in and the professional sports teams aren't too shabby either.
Geena Sethi, MD
University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tuscon Campus
I was born and raised in New Jersey and lived in Las Vegas, NV and Phoenix and Tucson in Arizona prior to moving to Boston for residency. I was used to moving around and wanted to live in a city so moving to Boston seemed like a good fit for me. Now that I am here I really enjoy going out with friends and checking out the fun things to do in Boston. Going on trips to visit friends and family is also really important to me and I am glad that my location makes that easy. In terms of the curriculum I really enjoy working in the Psych ED and on the Consult service and am interested in the Psychiatry Consult and Liaison Fellowship following residency. I'm pretty loud and outgoing so feel free to say hi if you see me around!
Whitney Snyders, MD
University of Missouri School of Medicine
I chose psychiatry because I like thinking through the complexities of each case and making connections with patients. I like to play tennis, go hiking, and I'm taking advantage of exploring the Northeast. The thing I love most about our program is the close bonds between the residents and attendings and their willingness to help us explore our future interests.

Jacobs School of Medicine, University of Buffalo
I was born and raised in Upstate New York, and have lived within a 10 minute drive of the I-90 my entire life. I double majored in Biology and French at the College of the Holy Cross, and took a detour to study in France during that time. After college, I moved out to Buffalo, NY where I completed my medical training at the Jacobs School of Medicine at UB. (Go Bills!) It was always my dream to live in Boston, and I love exploring all that this city has to offer. When I’m not in the hospital I enjoy exploring restaurants, trying new yoga classes, travelling and being with friends and family.

Thomas Scary, MD, MA
Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University
A native of the city of brotherly love, I have lived in the northeast my entire life. As an undergraduate I majored in music at NYU and studied abroad in Firenze, Italia for a semester. For medical school I returned to Philadelphia and went to Temple University’s School of Medicine, where I also received a master’s degree in Urban Bioethics. Outside of work I enjoy playing classical piano, going to concerts, and exploring New England. If you can tell me a joke about my name that I haven’t heard before, I’ll eat a copy of the DSM-V.

Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine
I studied Film and Digital Media as an undergraduate at UC Santa Cruz in California while also fulfilling the pre-medical requirements with a hope to pursue a career in psychiatry and here I am! Before medical school, I worked with special needs children and adults at a horse therapy and community integration program. After leaving California, I spent three years as an officer in the US Air Force working in the DC area. I graduated with my MD degree from Loyola University Chicago, Stritch School of Medicine. I have a strong interest in women’s mental health, lactation medicine and medication safety during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Outside of medicine, I enjoy hiking, backpacking and running, baking (especially apple pie and chocolate chip cookies), writing short stories, crochet and knitting, sewing children’s clothes, and spending time with my family.
Kenneth Lowe, MD
University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
I grew up in a small town in Colorado and moved to Boulder to go to college/graduate school at CU. Afterwards I drove two-thousand miles across the US to Florida to complete medical school at the University of Miami and then traveled up the east coast to Boston to join the Tufts family. Outside of the hospital you can find me in the Boston Common training to be the very best in Pokémon Go, enjoying a bad horror movie, out on the beach with one of my roommates (two greyhounds and a pit bull) or running along the harbor.

Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University
Hello! I’m originally from Long Island, NY and went to college in Baltimore where I majored in East Asian Studies at Johns Hopkins University. I then spent a year teaching STEM & hip-hop at an after school program in East Baltimore before joining Goucher’s post-bacc program. I “linked” to Brown, and have been in New England ever since! I was the oldest member of Brown’s undergraduate tap dance group, and am now finding ways to dance in the Boston area. I plan to continue onto child fellowship and work in schools and juvenile detention centers. I’m also the person to call if you ever want to go for some oysters during the workday!
