Why did you choose a career in family medicine?
There’s never a dull moment in family medicine. You are not limited to a particular body organ or disease process. In one of the rotations, within the space of four hours, I went from Nexplanon removal to a skin biopsy procedure to another elliptical skin biopsy, (which I sutured afterward). Family medicine allows you to provide comprehensive health care for people of all ages.
What are some of your fondest memories of medical school?
I went to Ross University School of Medicine, which is located in Dominica West Indies, so it was relaxing to study outside and enjoy the island breeze. I also enjoyed the organic fruits and vegetables of the island.
What drew you to pursue the Family Medicine Residency program with NGMC? For those not from Georgia, what do you like about Georgia?
I am a Georgia resident and did not want to do residency outside the state. During my NGMC interview season, I interacted well with the residents. Additionally, I heard many good things about the program from a physician who is not a family medicine physician! This physician talked about how the program has the best interest of the residents in mind. Now that I’m in the program, I can confirm that is true!
What were your favorite clubs/activities in high school?
My favorite clubs and sports were debate club, sprint, relay, long/high jump, and badminton.
What are your hobbies?
Walking, traveling, gardening, cooking different cultural food and listening to upbeat gospel music.
Do you have a special interest in the field of family medicine?
I am interested in global health and, recently, urgent care medicine.
