2014-2015 WIMS WIMS Executive Council
Christina Nenon (M4) – Co-President
I am from Memphis, TN and attended college at Tulane University in New Orleans. I am interested in pursuing a residency in pediatrics and working with the urban under-served. Through WIMS, I have met professional women in many different fields who have helped me narrow my interests and guide my career decisions. Outside of school, I enjoy cooking, reading, running, practicing yoga, playing soccer and tennis, and spending time with friends and family. Let me know if you have any questions about WIMS!
Holly Norwick (M4) – Co-President
My name is Holly Norwick. I'm a M4 going into OB/GYN. My undergraduate degree was in chemistry from Lambuth University in Jackson, TN. I've been involved in WIMS since starting medical school and have had rich relationships and experiences as a result! I love meeting new people and seeing them get involved in our organization. I'm excited about the opportunity to serve along with our great leadership team and members this upcoming year. Some of my favorite things to do here in Memphis include biking, playing basketball, running, cooking, and exploring restaurants.
Kate Rampon (M3) – Vice President
I am originally from Abilene, Texas, and moved to Memphis to be with my husband and work at the Church Health Center for a year before medical school. I fell in love with Memphis and am so happy to be at UT. My medical interests are in medical missions and underserved populations. I hope to do either a med/peds or family medicine residency and work with other people interested in global health. My outside interests include hanging out with my husband Garrett (M4) and cat, Carbie, working out, and reading novels in my free time. WIMS has really helped me with networking and getting to know students and professors outside of the classroom.
Elizabeth Lane (M3) – Treasurer
I was born and raised in North Florida, outside of Jacksonville. I received a B.S. in Nutrition from the University of Florida and a M.S. in Physiology and Biophysics, with a concentration in Complementary and Alternative Medicine, from Georgetown University. I am considering a future in OB/GYN and enjoy filling my free time with traveling, yoga, bike rides, and classical ballet. As a new medical student at UTHSC, I was drawn to WIMS because of its mission to provide a supportive female community and outlet for all women embarking on a career in the health sciences. I was also drawn to WIMS's emphasis on finding a strong female role model to act as a source of encouragement and inspiration throughout one's medical education.
Nandi Chihombori-Quao (M2) – Secretary
I was born and raised in Murfreesboro, TN and graduated from Yale University in 2010. I majored in Political Science before completing my post baccalaureate studies for medical school at Middle Tennessee State University. I am currently interested in exploring all the wonderful opportunities for research and service UTHSC has to offer.
Sarah Allan (M2) – Logistics Coordinator
I am from Knoxville, TN, and did my undergrad at Carleton College in Minnesota where I majored in Biology. Currently, I'm considering a career in pediatrics, and also have interests in public/preventative health, immunology, and infectious disease. Outside of medicine, I enjoy running, hiking, reading, and exploring Memphis. I have found WIMS to be an incredibly supportive community and valuable resource as I explore possible career paths, and I'm really excited about all our great events for the upcoming year.
Cori Rogers (M3) – Media Director
I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC and graduated from Appalachian State University in May 2012. I graduated with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I am currently interested in pursuing a career in reconstructive surgery. My boyfriend is in the process of achieving his Master's degree in Architecture at University of Memphis and I have an awesome dog named Cinnamon. WIMS has proved to be a great community for networking, mentorship, and general camaraderie at UTHSC and I am glad to be a part of that. I am very laid back so don’t hesitate to contact me!
Christy Carter (M3) – Alumni Coordinator and Chattanooga Representative
I am from Murfreesboro, TN and graduated from MTSU with a degree in Biochemistry. Some of my interests outside of medicine include any kind of exercise outside, cooking, playing with my new niece and nephew and traveling. I chose to get involved with WIMS after going to several events over my first and second year. I was truly inspired by how much the group promotes networking and support between women in all colleges at UTHSC. I am excited and looking forward to this next academic year!
Angela Stephens (M4) – Chattanooga Representative
Hi Y’all! I grew up in Ranger, Georgia. I graduated from Berry College with a BS in Anthropology and Sociology and a minor in chemistry. I plan on pursuing a career in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I hope to put my OBGYN skills to use in medical mission work. My non-academic interests include running, hiking, yoga, cooking, and painting. Feel free to contact me when you are in Chattanooga!
