2017-2018 WIMS Executive Council

Christina Nenon

Annie Ameha: Co-President


I’m a Memphian, born and raised. I graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2013 with a major in Sociology and minor in Religious Studies. I came back home after graduation to work as an ED scribe at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital. I was hesitant about staying in Memphis for another four years. However, after attending the WIMS weekend and meeting UT students and physicians, I was excited to have the opportunity to study medicine in my hometown. This experience ignited my passion for this group and the supportive network it provides. When I’m not studying (or attending a WIMS seminar/panel/social), I love to hang out with my friends, cook meals with the family, and anything that takes place outdoors (i.e. walking, running, hiking, picnics in the park, Levitt Shell concerts…you get the idea)!


Mimi Bach: Co-President


My name is Mimi and I am from Memphis, TN. I went to the University of Alabama for undergrad (Roll Tide!) and returned home for medical school. My first experience with WIMS was Women’s Weekend the spring prior to medical school matriculation. Immediately, I felt this sense of community full of kind, thoughtful, intelligent women who had similar interest and goals. This organization has been one of my favorite parts of the last four years. Currently, I am pursuing a career in Pediatrics working with underserved populations. In my free time, I enjoy being outside as much as possible. My fiancé and I met on a camping trip during our M1 year and now, we are graduating, getting married, and starting residencies all in the same year!


Abigail Lepsch: Co-President


I am from Kingsport, TN and attended Grove City College in Pennsylvania. After college I spent two years teaching with Teach for America in Charleston, SC. I am planning on going into ophthalmology and have matched to Georgetown University. Hopefully my career with include an academic and global component. Outside medical school, I spend time with my husband who I met in Memphis. I also love planning trips abroad, running, gardening and baking. WIMS has been part of my medical career from the beginning. I am so thankful for the friends and mentors I have made through the organization and am excited to see its future in supporting women! 


Megan Goss: Vice President


Hi everyone! I’m originally from Brentwood, TN and studied Psychology at Northwestern University (Go Cats!). I have wanted to become a pediatrician since elementary school, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to pursue my childhood dream at UT. In my free time I like to run, swim, spend time with my friends and boyfriend, try new restaurants and knock items off of my Memphis bucket list. I was first introduced to WIMS as an incoming M1 during Women’s Weekend and immediately fell in love with our fun, supportive and tight-knit community of women. Since starting medical school, I’ve truly appreciated the mentorship opportunities with female physicians in the area and getting to know more students at UTHSC through this group. We would love to hear from you, so if you have any questions about WIMS please reach out to any of us!


Karen Wang: Secretary


Hi y'all! My name is Karen and I was born and raised in Memphis, TN.  I went to undergrad at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) where I majored in psychology.  I love WIMS because it promotes such a great environment of support and encouragement from everyone involved - teachers become mentors, students become friends, and everyone is invested in helping you succeed.  In addition to reading historical nonfiction, puppy sitting, and (of course) napping, I love scouting out new ice cream spots and food trucks in Memphis. I can’t wait to meet everyone!


Christina Hunley: Treasurer


I am originally from Knoxville, TN and received my B.S. in Microbiology from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and M.S. in Pharmacology from UTHSC. I am interested in pediatrics. My husband, Luke, is in dental school at UTHSC. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with him, our cat Zoey, and friends/family. I also enjoy crafting, reading, rock climbing, and spending time outdoors. I think WIMS is a great organization. It provides a lot of networking opportunities and the chance to develop strong relationships with faculty and peers.

Cori Rogers

Eleanor Abreo: Media Director


I am originally from San Diego, CA and I attended the University of Southern California for undergraduate. As a displaced Californian, I was worried about attending medical school and not knowing anyone. Luckily, I attended WIMS weekend and met many intelligent, driven women - many of whom are still my friends today. WIMS provides a supportive, nurturing environment for women to grow professionally and that is why I love it. In my free time I enjoy: drawing, painting, going to museums, yoga, and the crispy rice treats from Muddy's.

Christy Carter

Anna-Carson Rimer Uhelski: Fundraising Chair


I am a 3rd year medical student interested in adult hematology/oncology. My husband and I moved to Memphis from Chattanooga, TN and we love exploring Memphis. In Chattanooga, I attended Girls Preparatory School for high school and then moved to Rome, GA to attend Berry College where I majored in Biochemistry and Spanish. Outside of WIMS, I love to dance (especially classical ballet), yoga, cook, hang out with my husband and animals (2 dogs - 1 cat), and love to get outside whenever I have time and the weather permits. I have a strong foundation from my all girls high school in building up women to be strong leaders and have been able to continue my support in this through my participation in WIMS. I have served in WIMS since my M1 year and have had so much fun with these strong women!


Madhuri Prasad: Logistics Coordinator


My name is Madhuri Prasad, and I am currently a third-year medical student. I’m from Memphis, TN and did my undergrad at Rhodes College where I majored in Biochemistry. Currently, I’m considering a career in either OB/GYN or pediatrics. I’ve always been hugely passionate about women’s health so when I joined WIMS as an M1, I was thrilled to see so many valuable resources, such as A Step Ahead Foundation and Sister Supply, in which I could channel my passions into. It’s an incredibly supportive and amazing community of women who come together to make a difference in the local Memphis community, and I’m so honored to be a part of it. 


Eesha Singh: Interprofessional Outreach Coordinator


I am originally from India, but I’ve lived around Memphis since I was 9. When I was an undergraduate I studied Computer Science and Neuroscience at Vanderbilt. I then took 2 gap years to do research in Baltimore before starting school at UTHSC. I’ve been involved in WIMS since before school because I was able to attend the women’s weekend and have formed a lot of friendships through it! I’m not entirely sure what I want to pursue but being around so many talented women in WIMS has helped me narrow my focus.


Kirstie Finch: Mentorship Coordinator


I am from Lebanon, TN and graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where I majored in Biochemistry and Spanish. Some of my interests outside of medicine include traveling, trying new foods, and exploring Memphis. I first became interested in WIMS after attending Women’s Weekend prior to starting medical school. Since joining WIMS, I have enjoyed meeting new people through our lunch talks and social events. As mentorship coordinator, I help facilitate networking opportunities between medical students and attending physicians where we can encourage one another along this wonderful medical journey. I am unsure of which specialty I want to pursue but aspire to have a bilingual practice and have an interest in medical missions.


Caroline Hymel: M1 Representative


I am a proud Memphian, born and raised. I received a B.A. in Psychology with a concentration in Neuroscience at the University of Memphis. I am considering a future in a surgical specialty, particularly neurosurgery, but am also drawn towards cardiology. I really enjoy painting and volunteering at the Humane Society in my spare time. I was very eager to join WIMS because, being from Memphis, I thought it was extremely important to not only encourage each other as women of UTHSC, but also build a strong sense of support between women within our community. I am so excited to a part of this organization and can’t wait to get started!


Deborah Mi: M1 Representative


I was born in upstate New York and lived in Hong Kong for my entire life until moving to Connecticut for college, where I attended Wesleyan University and majored in Biology. After that I moved to Florida to complete a Master's Degree in Medical Science at University of South Florida. I am now an M1 at UTHSC and am currently still undecided about my career plans, but have a strong interest in basic science research as well as OB/GYN. My hobbies include painting, working out, going to music shows/festivals, travel, and food.  I was drawn to WIMS because I'm passionate about women's healthcare, and supporting women in STEM careers.
