How we met!

First comes medical school, then comes marriage

We met on one of the first days of medical school. We had both recently moved to Omaha to attend Creighton University. Josh came all the way from Boston where he had lived his entire life and attended school (Boston College for undergrad and Boston University for his master's degree) and Elise came from Missouri having just graduated from the University of Missouri. We met at one of the Creighton "get-to-know-you" events held the first week of medical school at a bowling alley. Over the next two years, we became friends and bonded over our shared love of Creighton basketball. We started dating around the time we both finished our first board exams. After a stressful but incredibly rewarding four years of medical school, we successfully couples' matched together at Creighton for residency, Josh in internal medicine and Elise in OBGYN. A few months after a magical match day, Josh proposed in one of our favorite places, Cape Cod! And to make it even better, he surprised Elise by bringing both of our families together for the proposal. It was a dream come true! We are so grateful for Creighton and Omaha for bringing us together, and we can't wait to celebrate our wedding day with each and every one of you!
