|Nathaniel Wooten, MD (PGY-4)
Nate received his medical degree from UNC-Chapel Hill. He grew up in Raleigh, NC and went to undergraduate school at Wake Forest University. Nate’s areas of interest are concussion and epilepsy.

|Luke Quehl, MD (PGY-3)
Luke received his medical degree from Boston University School of Medicine. He also received a BA in English and biology from BU. Luke is interested in neurodevelopmental disorders, public health, TBI and neurocritical care. He focused his undergraduate English studies on oral tradition and enjoys observing the vast differences in how two patients might explain the same symptoms, and reflects on ways he might tailor his interview style to establish their trust and build their medical literacy.
Luke likes to tinker with tech, design, and programming, and has used these skills for designing and building sets for plays and dabbling in 3D. He also enjoys anything that puts him outside in a new place including bicycling, camping, farming and traveling. He chose UNC because of its reputation for excellence in comprehensive care, its strong advocacy for vulnerable patient populations, and the friendliness of everybody here.
|Stacey Chung, MD, DPharm (PGY-1)
Stacey received her MD from George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences; a DPharm degree from the University of Michigan; and a BS degree in biology from Nova Southeastern University.
Stacey grew up five minutes from Disney World so naturally became a big fan of all things Disney; if she wasn’t a physician, she would be a Disney Imagineer! She and her partner are parents to a sweet little Pibble named Atlas – he’s always up for an adventure but also loves his cuddle time! In her free time, Stacey loves going on hikes, training Atlas, working out, and belting out a good Disney tune in the car. She chose UNC for her child neurology training because it was important to her to train at a place that not only had strong clinical training and education, but also a place where everyone is family. This was obvious with every person she interacted with at UNC; she knew she wanted to call Chapel Hill home.
|Holly Phillippe, DO (PGY-1)
Holly received her DO from Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine – Virginia Campus. Her BS in biology is from Indiana Wesleyan University.
When Holly interviewed with UNC’s Child Neurology program, she felt at home. UNC’s commitment to diversity and service really resonated with her. She is excited about the many types of learning and teaching opportunities that she will have at UNC. Fun facts: Holly once roasted a marshmallow over volcanic lava and she can say “hello” and “thank you” in over 10 languages. Holly enjoys reading, traveling, playing the flute and crafting.
