This is my Story
After college, I worked in an orphanage in Honduras for a year before moving to Nashville to work for a big business. After volunteering at a medical clinic as a translator, I decided to cash in all my savings and go back to school. I took post-bac classes at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and from there went to ETSU QCOM.
I love traveling, just got back from Scotland for my 1 year anniversary. I have been fortunate in that I have been able to travel throughout Central America and Europe, and look forward to expanding my travels in the next few years.

Why did you choose Baptist?
Baptist has one of the largest hospital networks in the United States, and is continuing to expand in a market that has seen a lot of downsizing in the past few years. The hospital has a great history in the Memphis
community and a great reputation.
What is your day like? Any challenges?What's rewarding about your day?
Days vary based on rotations. The faculty are very friendly and provide a great learning environment for interns and residents.
What's your favorite thing about Memphis?
Personal interests outside of the residency program
Why did you choose your career? Was there someone or something in your life that helped you choose your path?
Why would you recommend Baptist to a prospective applicant?
I would recommend Baptist due to the size and extent of its care and resources. The Family Medicine Residency, co-sponsored by Baptist and Church Health, is particularly attractive due to its faith-based mission of truly caring for people, not just medically, but in all aspects of their lives.
