Paige was born and raised in California and grew up swimming competitively. Her interest in medicine was not realized until after she finished her NCAA eligibility and graduated from UC Santa Barbara (Go Gauchos!). She started working in clinical research and met amazing mentors. She was gratefully accepted to Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Louisiana and pursued a dual MD/MPH&TM degree program in public health and tropical medicine.
Paige chose OB/GYN because she wanted to be an advocate for women and their families. Currently, she is interested in gynecologic oncology, family planning, or being a generalist (and get to do a little bit of everything!). Paige chose Indiana University because of the incredible resident culture, the supportive faculty, and the opportunity to live in a new region of the country. She got the feeling something special was happening at IU and needed to join the fun. She also walked 7 miles around the city the day before the interview and realized it was a sign she fit right in with city.
