Medical School: Ross University: Barbados
Bio: I grew up in Benin, Nigeria, where my sister and I volunteered at a non-profit organization that cared for children with special needs. I realized early on my love for being a caregiver. Years later, while living in Pennsylvania with my husband who was an internal medicine resident, I pursued my nursing degree at Rutgers University, NJ. Then, after a few years of nursing, I decided to become a doctor and attended Ross University, Dominica.
I chose family medicine because it allows me to connect with patients and their families and care for patients through the entire spectrum of life. Family medicine also promotes health promotion and disease prevention.
I chose MIZZOU Family Medicine because of its national reputation and opportunities to practice evidence-based medicine. At my interview, I observed the strong bond between residents and faculty and was impressed by the program’s passion for serving uninsured populations.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy taking walks with my husband, playing basketball with my three boys and cooking with my daughter. As a family, we love exploring new places and restaurants, and attending church.
