Family and travel are her loves in life. She studied at the University of Rochester for both undergrad and medical school in Rochester, New York.

Catriona Macardle, MD- Class of 2017


Cat hails from Durham, a small northern English city that once had Harry Potter film in its 900 year old Cathedral! She attended Durham University where the college system, like Oxford or Cambridge, is still in place. Some undergraduates live in a medieval castle but her college "Trevelyan College" was entirely composed of hexagons. Apparently the architect was concerned that females had an internal fear of right angles! Managing to overcome this fear of right angles, Cat graduated with BA (Hons) in Anthropology and by that time had also worked and travelled worldwide. Her dream of becoming an OBGYN was set well before her admission into Newcastle medical school, but was cemented by her experiences in a Ghanaian labor and delivery unit.

She followed her husband to Michigan a few years ago and has never been happier. She enjoys spending days off with her two little boys and soaking in everything that enchanting Ann Arbor has to offer. She especially likes hearing the University of Michigan marching band rehearse a couple of blocks from her house, having Ann Arbor's famous Washtenaw Dairy ice cream parlor down the road, and planning her winter knitting projects. St Joe's has been the perfect family for this outsider and she is looking forward to seeing what the rest of residency brings.


Jade Burch, MD - Class of 2018


Jade was born in Detroit, MI. She knew from a very young age she wanted to become a physician, inspired primarily by her childhood pediatrician. She had a mindset that she was going to follow in his footsteps and become a pediatrician until she enrolled in the University of Michigan for undergrad. It was there, while pursuing her major in biology that she began to experiment with a few courses in Women’s Studies. She loved them so much she earned a minor in Gender and Health and knew she was an OB/Gyn in the making. Her inclination was further solidified with her third and fourth year clerkships in OB/Gyn while she was a medical student at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, IL.

She is a self-proclaimed “home-body” that loves reading (especially teen adventure fantasy!), movies and a nice glass of wine. But never fear, she also enjoys a night out with family and friends for dancing or enjoying dinner at one of Ann Arbor’s multitude of awesome restaurants!


Caitlin Parker, MD – Class of 2018


Caitlin was born and raised in Santa Barbara, California. She attended University of California Los Angeles for undergrad where she played soccer and majored in biochemistry. Believe it or not, very ready to leave California she attended Michigan State University College of Human Medicine where she discovered both her love for OBGYN and the state of Michigan not to mention met her fellow Spartan engineer husband.

She looks forward to caring for women through times of celebration and transition in their lives. Caitlin fell in love with St. Joes OBGYN and is so thrilled to spend at least the next 4 years surrounded by such incredible fellow residents and supportive faculty.


Johnna Nynas, MD – Class of 2018


Johnna grew up in Evansville, Minnesota, a rural farming community known for its rolling hillsides, beautiful lakes, and Scandinavian heritage. She received her bachelor's degree in Women's Studies and Public Health at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. She then accepted a staff position as a Retail Manager at the University of Minnesota where she worked extensively with student development and teaching. Shortly after college she married her college sweetheart, Dan, and together they adopted two Shetland sheepdogs whom they affectionally call their "fur kids." Johnna attended the University of Minnesota Medical School's Duluth campus. While she always had an interest in women's health, she decided to become an OB/Gyn after realizing her love for both surgery and primary care.

In her free time Johnna is an accomplished cook; having taught several cooking classes and is currently working on her first cookbook. She also loves music and dancing, and is a licensed Zumba instructor. She hopes to incorporate her knowledge of cooking, love of Zumba, and passion for preventative care into her future medical practice.


Alex Argyelan, MD> – Class of 2018


Alex grew up in Bourbonnais, IL, a small town 50 miles south of Chicago. He hadn't always known he wanted to be a physician and actually did not realize it until his senior year of college after shadowing a local physician. He did his undergraduate studies in Physics at Knox College in Galesburg, IL. He then went to medical school at Ross University in Dominica, while completing all of his clinical rotations in the Detroit metro area. He chose OB/GYN because of the diversity in the physicians' role. When not reading or working he enjoys cooking, exercising and spending time with friends and family.

Sara Muszynski, MD

Sara Muszynski, MD – Class of 2019


Sara is a Michigan native, growing up in Shelby Township, a suburb of Metro Detroit. She attended Michigan State University for undergrad majoring in Zoology, where courses consisted of dissecting lampreys and cats rather than cadavers accompanied delightfully by the ever intriguing study of chicken embryos. During her time, she transitioned through many career possibilities, substance abuse counseling, pharmacy, and finally decided junior year to put all her efforts into pursuing medical school. She went on to attend Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and immediately was drawn to OB/GYN early on due to the high intensity and versatility of the specialty.

Sara is recently married. Her and her husband Aaron met "dancing" in Royal Oak. They are die hard Spartan fans, which makes living in Ann Arbor somewhat controversial... They have season tickets to Spartan Football and adore fall for this reason. Additionally, Sara and her husband spend many nights at the gym, also enjoy running, and loud live music. Sara is thrilled to be at St. Joe's finally pursuing her passion!

She worked in the Psychiatric Emergency Room at Denver Health before she was accepted into Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Jennifer fell in love with the field of OB/Gyn during her fourth year of medical school, when she realized the specialty was the perfect combination of everything she enjoys about medicine. During fourth year, she completed a rotation at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor and quickly knew that this was the place where she wanted to train. She was thrilled to "continue her move east" when she matched into the residency program!

Katherine Riddle, MD

Katherine Riddle, MD – Class of 2019


Katie was born and raised with her 3 sisters in Cheshire, CT, a suburban town just north of New Haven. She attended College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA, where she majored in biology with a pre-medical concentration, played Division I lacrosse, and sang in the college and chamber choirs. Katie then traveled halfway across the country(!!) to Omaha, NE, where she attended Creighton University School of Medicine. Katie knew from an early age that she wanted to become a doctor, and her passion for women’s health was realized during her second year of medical school. This is when she volunteered at the monthly Women’s Magis Clinic, a student-led clinic for homeless women in the Omaha area. 

Katie has always loved playing the role of coach or teacher, whether it was in the form of her previous tutoring jobs or volunteering at summer youth lacrosse camps. She is very excited that as a resident, she has medical students to take under her wing, and that as a physician she gets the opportunity to educate her patients in a way that makes them feel empowered about themselves and their bodies.

Katie enjoys spending her spare time with friends and family, telling stories and laughing, watching sports, and catching up on her favorite TV shows.  She can find the best YouTube videos to share with friends and has semi-professional karaoke skills. She also enjoys volunteering, which once led her to dressing up as the Pillsbury Doughboy at a Kid’s Convention Center.

Andrea Starostanko, MD

Andrea Starostanko, MD – Class of 2019


Andi grew up in Traverse City, MI where she met her husband Eric when they were in high school. She attended Michigan State University for undergrad, majoring in physiology and later went on to attend medical school there as well. Her husband is also a Michigan State University alumnus and is currently a second year medical student at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine – needless to say Sparty was in attendance at the wedding.

Andi would describe herself as "indoorsy." She loves to curl up on the couch with her husband and two cats (Muffin and Scooter) and watch a Netflix Original. She enjoys karaoke and dancing; although those around her would prefer that she did not. Even though she is a Spartan at heart she is falling in love with the Ann Arbor area, especially the abundant art/culture/festivals and great "foodie" restaurants in the area.

Andi is planning to eventually practice as a generalist. Her favorite part about being an OB-GYN is connecting with women and taking advantage of the many "teachable moments" inherent in pregnancy, labor, and childbirth, and really challenging women to be their best selves. 

Tina Chaalan, MD

Tina Chaalan, MD - Class of 2020


Tina was born and raised in Dearborn Heights, MI, a suburb of the Metro Detroit area. She attended the University of Michigan for undergrad, earning a degree in Biology and a minor in Psychology. She was an active board officer for several student organizations and worked as a biology lab assistant and at the Women's Resource Center. Her most memorable time there was in the research lab where she and her close-knit lab crew spent almost four years collecting, raising and dissecting cute little spiders. Tina later went on to attend medical school at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. The love of surgery, a strong interest in women's health and primary care are what led Tina down the path to OB/GYN. Wanting to stay close to home and family, she is very happy to be at St. Joe's Ann Arbor!

If there is one way to describe Tina, it would be that she is all about variety. She loves to try new and exciting things! Her interests range from reading Steven King books and drawing, to politics and cooking. Never one to sit still, Tina loves to exercise! Running, playing tennis, soccer and hiking bring her great joy. If that's not enough to keep her busy, she is always picking up new hobbies (and sometimes tossing out the old ones!). You can always count on Tina to accompany you on an adventure; all you have to do is ask!

Amber Glenn, MD - Class of 2020

Laura Ruch, MD

Laura Ruch, MD - Class of 2020


Laura grew up in Toledo, Ohio. She is the daughter of an Ob/Gyn and as a child looked forward to her mother's nights on call when she would get to sleep at the hospital and hear exciting stories of newborn babies over cafeteria ice cream. She attended Northwestern University for undergrad where she majored in biology and global health.

For medical school, she moved home to study at the University of Toledo College of Medicine and hit the parks with her dog. A love of a fast paced environment in addition to a pull towards working alongside women during the very highs and lows of their lives were what ultimately drew her to this field. Outside of the hospital, Laura enjoys long distance trail running, hiking, yoga, and going to rock concerts. She is thrilled to be a part of the St. Joe's community!
