Sonia I Millan Pinzon

I’m originally from Boston, a train-riding-pavement-stomping-crowd-jockeying urbanite.  After graduating from college in North Carolina, I found my first calling by way of the New & Gauley Rivers in West Virginia.  For 8 years, I was a tent-dwelling, nomadic raft guide.  Life brought me to Tennessee, where I attended Quillen COM and participated in the Rural Tack Program, a fantastic educational experience in rural primary care.  After a year of general surgery residency, I’m so very excited to come back to my “educational roots” and the career versatility of family medicine.  I just knew that Kingsport Family Medicine was the place for me.  I feel strongly that the faculty shares my philosophies about the practice of medicine, supports my interest in rural/international medicine, and will advance my overall personal and professional development.  I’m an avid outdoorswoman. I enjoy kayaking, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing, and gardening.  At Kingsport Family Medicine, I know I will be supported in my professional goals as well as encouraged to keep doing the things that make me “a happy me.”
