Career Interests


Helen is from Burlington, NC and attended UNC-Chapel Hill for college as a Morehead-Cain Scholar. She graduated in 2014 with a B.S. in Biology, after which she started medical school at UNC to obtain a combined MD/MPH. As a medical student, Helen participated in various student groups and dermatology research projects. Notably, she was recognized for outstanding academic performance with induction into the AOA Honor Society as a junior. Helen is especially excited to stay in Chapel Hill for residency since her family and fiancé are nearby and her brother is a medical student at UNC. She enjoys many things outside of medicine, including cooking, exercise (yoga, running, HIIT), snow and water skiing, travel, and spending time with family and friends. Helen is a preliminary internal medicine resident and will begin her dermatology residency at UNC-Chapel Hill in 2020.
