Career Plans
Nephrology, Transplant Medicine, Medical Education
Ally was born in Tupelo, MS and moved with her parents to the sunny beaches of Destin, FL. She attended Florida State University and graduated summa cum laude in Exercise Science. She fell in love with FSU College of Medicine’s mission to care for the underserved and remained at FSU for medical school (hopeful that the Seminoles would win another national championship). Ally developed a passion for internal medicine with an interest in cardiology due to its complex intertwining of pathophysiology, lifestyle choices, and social determinants of health. She spent an extra year during this time pursuing a master’s degree in education at Vanderbilt’s Peabody College. She is interested in learning environment research and curriculum design to support a diverse student population. Ally has been a transient Nashvillian for several years visiting her partner, Bryan, a budding Ph.D. in Biomedical Informatics. They are thrilled to make Nashville and Vanderbilt their permanent home. Member of AOA.
