My name is Monique! I was born and raised on the island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands. For undergrad, I went to the University of Chicago, and transferred to the University of the Virginia islands in my sophomore year. I was accepted into a pathway program during my sophomore year with provisional acceptance into Boston University School of Medicine. In medical school, I found myself drawn to Primary Care and Obstetrics. In particular, I gravitated towards family medicine because I began to understand the importance of longitudinal care and building relationships with patients and the community over time. After residency, I plan to do a reproductive health care or obstetric fellowship. In my free time, I love to travel whenever I get the chance, and I also love cooking for friends and family.

Fun things I like to do are: spending quality time with loved ones (my parents are my best friends), carpool karaoke, Burn Boot Camp, movies, and exploring fun, new things to do in Cville with my co-residents who have become my family.
