What are your career goals?
I plan to integrate nephrology with global health, research, and education. I would love to continue practicing clinical nephrology in an academic setting while also having dedicated time to research, collaborate, and educate about kidney issues abroad.
What were you looking for in a fellowship program?
I was searching for robust, individualized mentorship to support the career I envisioned in nephrology. In addition, I wanted to train somewhere that the fellows were happy, enthusiastic, and motivated.
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
From the day I received my interview invitation, Duke faculty have provided meaningful guidance and encouragement. The fellows seem to love what they do and are supported very well by the department.
What are your hobbies?
Travelling (in non-COVID times!), church activities, reading fiction, and crochet
