Graduate of University of Maryland

Though born in the U.S., I grew up in London, England. I moved back to the U.S. to attend Dartmouth College, which I loved. I was not ready for medical school at that time so I returned to England to complete a PhD in molecular biology at the University of Cambridge. Four years later, I decided to head across the pond, once again, to begin my medical training at the University of Maryland.  From early in my training, I was drawn to Family Medicine. I liked the idea of getting to know my patients and seeing them as part of a larger community. Additionally, I enjoy seeing a wide range of medical problems and relish the idea of treating everyone from newborns to centenarians. As someone that has moved around a lot, I knew that I wanted to search the country to find the best residency program for me. I spent a wonderful month traveling from the East Coast, via the Midwest, to the West Coast. In the end, I decided that UNC was the program for me. Not only were the people I met friendly and warm, but the program had the rigors and excellence in residency training I was looking for.  I have now been at UNC for 2-1/2 years and still think I made the right decision

I love to travel and see new places, and while this has been a little more difficult during residency, I have gotten to go on several trips around the this beautiful state. When I am not in the hospital, I enjoy cooking and baking and am always trying new recipes.
