Resident Physician | Class of 2020

Where are you coming from? I am a suburban Chicago native but a proud Tar Heel for the last 8 years. I completed both undergrad and med school at UNC.

What inspired you to be an OB/GYN? I volunteered with a Centering Pregnancy prenatal care group in Asheville, North Carolina, during my third year of medical school. Working with a very diverse group pregnant women longitudinally for 6 months, learning alongside of them, and ultimately being a part of their deliveries was amazing and solidified my desire to be an OB/GYN.

Why did you choose Carolina? I ultimately want to serve in a rural part of North Carolina and, after my phenomenal experience at UNC during my 4th year acting internship, felt that training here would prepare me exceptionally for my future career.

What you are most excited about this year? I am so excited to get to know my colleagues and learn how I can fit into the awesome UNC family so I can be a great addition to the program. (and the late-night cookie delivery place on Franklin St… and the 24 hour Starbucks in the hospital…)
