Claire Nugent grew up in Cincinnati before heading to Villanova for college. After college, she decided to return closer to family and found herself loving Louisville. She met her boyfriend, Corey Ketchem, a fellow internal medicine resident at CPR training the first week of medical school. They are excited to be a part of the UNC family, and explore this new adventure together. Claire enjoys cooking, trying out new restaurants and breweries, enjoying the sunshine, and walking dogs– hopefully there will be a puppy in the near future for her!
