Why did you choose Duke for your fellowship training?
It was clear that Duke MFM would prepare me to become the maternal fetal medicine specialist I have always aspired to be while remaining in a supportive, collegial environment. I knew I wanted to be somewhere with medically and socially complex patients where providers strived to provide safe, quality and equitable care. Duke is that place and so much more!
What excites you about the fellowship program at Duke Obstetrics and Gynecology?
There are just so many things! The excitement for novel ideas – whether it's a research question or a potential quality improvement project – is contagious. The mentorship here is invaluable. Additionally, it is impossible to not be excited when you care for such deserving and interesting patients. The breadth of complexity and comorbidities in our patient population has provided boundless knowledge and experience.
What are your career goals?
My heart is in academic medicine. I truly love learning, and I love teaching. I am passionate about patient safety, quality and equity and impacting maternal and fetal outcomes from this pursuit. My career goal is to bring patient safety, quality and equity to the forefront of everything we do in obstetrics and to promote research in this arena.
What are your hobbies?
In my spare time, I love to spend quality time whether that's exploring new trails, visiting the zoo or the Life and Science museum with my husband and our 2 year old. My husband and I renovated our first home during residency, so we love to DIY and craft together. Pre pandemic, we loved to travel. The last country we explored was Croatia, which was incredible. We can't wait to start exploring with our family once the pandemic wanes. When I'm not in family mode, I enjoy reading, particularly books about World War II, and painting (obstetric and gynecologic histologic slides).
