I was born and raised in Nigeria where I attended medical school. A few years after graduation, I moved to the US, completing my internal medicine residency training in Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Charlottesville in 2013 to commence fellowship training in nephrology. Prior to interviewing at UVA, I knew very little about Charlottesville, but fell in love with the city, once I got here. The scenery continues to be breath-taking. The smiles of the relaxed but hardworking people I meet everyday, heartwarming. There is a lot for young families around the city. My husband and I find joy in discovering new, hidden and fun attractions that keep our family falling in love with the city over and over again.
My professional training at UVA has been an excellent learning experience. I have loved every second working with and learning from a highly regarded yet very supportive faculty, nursing staff, and colleagues. UVA is a big academic center that caters to a variety of patient populations from places far and near, thus providing an array of learning opportunities for fellows.
When not busy at the hospital, I try to experiment with new food recipes, while learning a few spine-twisting dance moves from my kids.
