Hi! I’m Priscille and I was raised in sunny Lake Worth, Florida just 15 minutes from the beach! I attended Duke University for undergrad, where I studied Psychology and Global Health. My fieldwork in Haiti (my family’s home country) made me passionate about pursuing a career in both global and public health. During my gap year, I served as an AmeriCorps graduation coach with the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County, which was a great experience mentoring first-generation high school students and giving back to the community where I grew up.
I was excited to return back to Durham to start medical school at Duke. I was a part of the Primary Care Leadership Track (PCLT) which offered me the type of medical education that I was most interested in, one that not only focused on clinical medicine, but also population health, community engagement, and social justice. I also worked on primary care innovation and improvement research focused on telehealth. I am so excited to continue my training at UNC and have the chance to practice full scope family medicine with amazing and diverse faculty! After my training I am looking forward to serving in an underserved community as a National Health Service Corps member.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and planning trips with my fiancé. I enjoy going to Zumba classes, Latin dancing, swimming, finding new baking recipes and decorating pies, and trying out new restaurants in the area! I am so excited to spend the next 3 years getting to know my co-residents better and caring for patients in the Triangle.
