Reflections on the Duke program

What were you looking for in a residency program?
A large institution that saw a variety of diseases and treated a variety of patients but still had a friendly, family atmosphere.

About Duke and Durham

What's best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
Food trucks everywhere! Also, there is a great city atmosphere with many things to do but its not as crowded as a large city. There is always something happening whether it is a Saturday or a Wednesday. Did I already mention the food?

What advice would you give about moving to Durham?
Durham is great if you want to live in the city but I live 15 minutes away in Morrisville and love it!

Personal interests

What do you like to do outside of work?
Eat and explore the Durham/Raleigh area. So far I have been sailing, hiking, eating at new restaurants and enjoying movies at both large and small theaters.

What is something interesting/surprising about you?
I was a competitive gymnast until college and continued to teach gymnastics through medical school.
