Start Year: 

Why did you chose Duke for residency training?

The residents!  I knew from our interview dinner that I wanted to be a part of such a diverse group of physicians.  The commitment to creating residency classes that are filled with all types of people with all types of interests is particularly hard to find amongst elite institutions. 

What are your career interests?

To bring high-quality General Obstetric and Gynecologic care to patients in underserved areas that may otherwise have limited access to care.

What are your hobbies?

Avid telephone-talker, Face-Timer, shopper, and friend! Being a good friend during residency is a hobby on it's own! Weddings, baby showers, house warmings...list of life events goes on!
