Introduction: Christy

Hi ladies! My name is Christy and I am married to a PGY-2 Psychiatrist, who I refer to as Dr. D. We have been married for a little over 7 years and have a 3 1/2 year-old daughter. That really doesn't even begin to describe our journey together though!

We were both born and raised in the same small town in Southeast Arkansas, but we didn't meet until we were in high school (incidentally, the same school as Allison and JM!). We started dating at the end of my junior year, and after a year apart (he was a grade ahead of me), we were back at the same college. We got married as soon as I graduated in December 2001 (B.A. History). Dr. D had a few more classes to finish in order to round out his degrees (yep...he got two diplomas), so he graduated in May 2002.

Med School took us to Little Rock, where we had many good times and many good friends. We had a very tight group of friends in med school. We both feel lucky to have found these folks. In fact, we returned from a trip up to Boston where we visited some of our med school friends!
Because our daughter was born in November 2005 (Dr. D graduated May 2006), Dr. D decided that he should take a year off to do research instead of having our young family move across country. I completely supported/agreed with this decision. He took a research position with the hospital in Little Rock while continuing to learn about residency programs across the country.

A year passed, interview season came and went, and we found ourselves patiently (ok, not so patiently) awaiting match day--again. I tell you, no one should ever have to do that twice! Fortunately for us, he got the school he liked the best and landed at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. It has been a great move, and I would totally do it all over again! I never thought we could be this happy being so far away from "home".
