Laura Starzenski

1st-Year Resident

University of Virginia


I’m from Northern Virginia and studied chemistry and pharmacology at Duke.  After undergrad, I taught chemistry and volunteered as an EMT for a few years before going to medical school at UVA.  I chose UVA because people are genuinely happy here and I feel so grateful to be staying to complete my residency.  Outside of the hospital, I love taking advantage of all the fantastic waterfall hikes Shenandoah has to offer, exploring the local wineries, and snuggling with my cat Toby.
