Why Quillen
Being a nationally ranked school in primary care, nationally ranked in rural medicine, and conveniently located close to my hometown, Quillen was the only choice for me; there was no comparison! When I interviewed, everyone made me feel like part of a family. 

Being a Quillen Student
Academically, I am receiving an exceptional medical education, and I feel like I am being prepared thoroughly for when I get out into the "real world". Socially, I absolutely love my fellow students and professors. I will definitely make and keep my best friends for life from this experience. 

Life Outside the Classroom
I enjoy hiking at Roan Mountain, biking the Virginia Creeper Trail, and playing intramurals. 

Prior Life
I took a year and a half off between undergrad and medical school. During that time I worked at a pediatric clinic in my hometown.

Living In Northeast Tennessee
I love the people; everybody is friendly.  I also enjoy the breathtaking scenery.  You actually experience all 4 seasons here, which is not the case in some regions.   

Juggling School and Family 
My immediate family lives only about 45 minutes away, and they are very understanding and supportive of my goals and aspirations.  I have an older sister who lives in Johnson City, and we meet at 5:30 in the morning and run frequently.  We "kill two birds with one stone" exercising and catching up.
