A little about us...

I met Jeff in January of my Junior year in college while he was in his 3rd year of Medical school.  We had to make the decision after only 1 year of dating to move together to a new city!

He matched in Orthopaedic Surgery and I was accepted into a Neuroscience PhD program, both in New Orleans.  We each started our programs in the fall of 2008.

We got married in New Orleans in October 2011.

I graduated with my PhD in May 2013, and Jeff finished residency shortly thereafter in June!  We moved a month later to Jackson, MS for his Sports Medicine fellowship and where I did a short post-doctoral fellowship.

  2. I love your blog Chrissie! I read it all in one seating! Good thing you only have 4 posts per month ha! I'm married to a medical student & I love to see what awaits me if he were to pursue surgery! You guys are a strong couple and if you've endured this you can endure anything!
