Resident Physician | Class of 2020
Where are you coming from? University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, MS.
What inspired you to be an OB/GYN? I was inspired by the role an OB/GYN plays in the dynamics of a family. We get to follow patients throughout all stages of their lives and we sometimes get to deliver their babies. In addition, OB/GYN has a lot to offer as a specialty. The variety of procedures and the continuity of care are unique. OB/GYNs go from being primary care physicians to surgeons on the same day.
Why did you choose Carolina? NC is such a beautiful place. Chapel Hill is ideally located between the mountains and beaches. It is a rustic place with a hip atmosphere. I get to experience all seasons and snowy winters are short. And let’s not forget about the variety of delicious food this place has to offer. Most importantly, I chose NC for UNC. Besides the amazing training and experience the program offers, I was drawn mainly to the camaraderie among the residents and the faculty’s support that unmistakably pervades the program. During my interview visit, they presented themselves as a family and they are truly my family now. I could have not asked for a better place to call home.
What you are most excited about this year? To finally get to take care of my own patients and deliver babies. I also look forward to getting to know my colleagues and to explore the mountains and beaches of NC.
