Start Year: 


Why did you choose Duke for your fellowship training?

I chose Duke for its excellent clinical training with a medically complex and diverse patient population, its phenomenal research opportunities in both basic and clinical science and for the incredibly supportive and successful group of faculty who will be both my mentors and colleagues.

What excites you about the fellowship program at Duke Obstetrics and Gynecology?

Everything! The clinical training, the opportunities for education and the dedicated time and resources available to help me explore and develop projects related to my specific interests.

What are your career goals?

Practice Maternal-Fetal Medicine within an academic center with an emphasis on clinical practice and education.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy spending time outside with my fiancé & Goldendoodle puppy (Paisley), cooking, traveling, and watching sports.
