Why did you choose Duke for your fellowship training?
It was apparent from my interactions with the faculty and my co-fellows on the interview day and at the annual SGO meeting that there is a strong sense of community. The clinical and research opportunities in addition to strong mentorship at Duke makes it a fantastic place to train.
What excites you about the fellowship program at Duke Obstetrics & Gynecology?
The opportunity to learn from all the faculty and staff at Duke. I am also passionate about medical education and look forward to the opportunity to work with all our Duke trainees.
What are your career goals?
My goal is to become an academic gynecologic oncologist with a busy clinical practice, and with a balance of teaching and clinical research.
What are your hobbies?
I have more hobbies than I can keep up with. My usual go to hobbies are cooking/baking, salsa dancing, crocheting, spending time with my husband and dog, and any new flavor of the month from fusing glass to adult paint by numbers to candle making.
