About Me: My favorite thing in the world is just hanging out with my husband and our two rescue dogs – a boxer and a pit bull. I love baseball and my husband and I are on a mission to see a game in every major league ballpark. The thing that excites me most is planning trips – I love to travel! I am a huge Disney fan and I had my bachelorette party in Disney World. I also love cheese. And potatoes.

Hobbies: Hobbies include kayaking, eating out, and listening to 80’s music. I love anything I can do outdoors, and I’m currently trying to learn how to golf.

Why I Chose UNC: A truly supportive group of people who encourage curiosity and have a passion for patient-centered care. Plus, you can’t tell me there’s a color more beautiful than Carolina Blue – go Heels!
