UNIVERSITY TRACK RESIDENT
Hi there! My name is Christine. I was born and raised in the City Beautiful (Orlando) in the Sunshine State (Florida). My first adventure to North Carolina was to attend undergrad at Duke University, where I obtained a B.S. in Evolutionary Anthropology with Distinction. I did my honors thesis research at the Duke Lemur Center (go visit!).
After graduating, I returned to Orlando to work as a medical scribe for Emergency Medicine providers. During my second gap year, I obtained a M.S. in Medical Sciences from the University of South Florida. While applying to medical school, I worked as a medical scribe for an Orthopedic Surgeon and Physician Medicine & Rehabilitation physician. I moved further south to attend medical school at the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL. During medical school, I volunteered with the Healthcare Careers Outreach Program (HCOP) and Health Professions Recruitment and Exposure Program (HPREP; now Bridge to Medicine). I was fortunate to participate in two international medical mission trips to Haiti and the Philippines.
I chose Family Medicine to provide continuity of care across the lifespan while advocating for patients and coordinating their care. I am thrilled to join the incredible UNC Family Medicine team! My medical interests include academic medicine, community health, and quality improvement. In my free time, I enjoy listening to podcasts (check out Dissect), reading, working out, and staying in touch with family and friends. I am always up for an adventure, especially if it involves food.
