Child Neurology Residents

Katelyn Ammons, MD (PGY-1)

Katelyn received her medical degree from the University of Toledo. Her areas of interest in neurology are epilepsy and sleep disorders. Katelyn chose UNC because she was impressed with the program, global health opportunities, and most importantly, the friendly people. She wanted a program where she could see herself fitting in well, and UNC was a perfect fit for her. In addition, Katelyn enjoys the beauty of the Triangle area and its many offerings. She says, “Being a runner and outdoors person, I love that I can do my favorite activities outside all year long in beautiful Chapel Hill.” Some of Katelyn’s other hobbies include tennis, kayaking, traveling and cooking.

Jordan Broman-Fulks, MD (PGY-2)

Jordan went to medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina. Having attended UNC as an undergraduate, he couldn't wait to get back to the area for his residency since Chapel Hill is a beautiful and safe place for his family. Together they enjoy college sporting events, concerts, and visiting the mountains and the beach, both just a few hours away. He and his wife are the proud parents of a beautiful daughter and two dogs.

Senyene Hunter, MD (PGY-3)

Senyene received a BS in chemistry and a PhD in biological chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before entering medical school at UNC, Senyene was a professor at St. Augustine's College. She enjoys creative writing, biking the local trails, weight lifting, cooking, and rollerblading (which includes an extensive amount of falling). Her favorite way to relieve stress is engaging her 9-year-old son in a spirited game of soccer or basketball.

Adeel Yousaf, MD (PGY-4)

Adeel completed his medical degree from Army Medical College at the National University of Sciences and Technology in Pakistan. He completed his general pediatric residency at Lutheran General Children’s Hospital in Illinois. Adeel worked as general pediatrician in Michigan and was also a pediatric hospitalist at Memorial Hospital in South Bend, Indiana. After becoming Board Certified in Pediatrics, he also worked as a pediatric heme/onc hospitalist at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. Having visited Chapel Hill previously, he accepted a position at UNC in pediatric neurology. Adeel likes to work out and visit the beach with his four-year-old daughter.

Kristal Sully (PGY-5)

Kristal left her hometown of Wichita Falls, Texas to attend undergraduate and medical school at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Kristal chose UNC due to its strong emphasis on clinical skills and resident teaching. She feels that UNC is able to effectively hone her clinical skills while integrating evidence-based practice. Kristal also was drawn to the diversity of the patients that are referred here from all over NC, neighboring states, and internationally. UNC’s location was also a key factor in her decision: temperate weather, proximity to the beach and an international airport, a variety of restaurants, and the growing Triangle metropolitan areas. Now a PGY-5, Kristal says, “UNC was the perfect fit for me and I would gladly choose it again in a heartbeat!”
