Reflections on the Duke program
What were you looking for in a residency program?
I was looking for a group of fellow residents and faculty members who would welcome me into their family as an equal. I also sought out programs that place an equal emphasis on primary care as well as sub-specialties of Pediatrics. I knew that I would see many of the interesting and rare cases at Duke and have a complimentary experience in my time at Wake Med.
About Duke and Durham
What's best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
This area has the ideal mix of settings--many restaurants and things to do in downtown Durham, lakes and park lands just a short drive away, and you can have a backyard perfect for grilling, roasting marshmallows, and some quality hammock time! This was something important to be because I’m from a rural farming area but lived in the Philadelphia area for the last 8 years. I hoped to find a place where I could find a great balance of both!
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love spending time with my partner and co-resident, Cory. We enjoy being outdoors and making dinner together. This year we plan to try some new recipes outside of our usual Italian category.
