Career Plans
Raeann was born in Overland Park, Kansas and grew up in the suburbs of Kansas City. She attended the University of Kansas, where she majored in microbiology and developed a passion for immunology. She then ventured from the Midwest to the South for medical school at Duke University, although she remains a lifelong Jayhawk fan. At Duke, she engaged in numerous teaching and leadership opportunities as well as laboratory-based immunological research. She also spent time in the Duke Lupus Clinic and was involved in several lupus clinical research projects. In her spare time, she enjoys creative outlets through arts and crafts, hiking, and curling up with coffee and a good book. She and her little southern belle pup, Maisie Mae, are excited to stay in the South at Vanderbilt!
