I was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria and moved to the US in 2008. I attended medical school at the University Of Ibadan College Of Medicine in Nigeria. I completed my Internal Medicine Residency at Meharry Medical College, Nashville, TN. After completing residency, I worked as a hospitalist in TN. Also, I was involved in a biomedical research project on type 2 diabetes, with the Endocrine Division at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. My husband and I have two sons, ages 6 and 4.
