Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine/
My name is Anthony and I am a third year resident at Wake. I grew up in Phoenix, and made my way down to the University of Arizona in Tucson for undergrad(beardown!), where I majored in Economics and Political Science. I then migrated back to Phoenix for medical school at AZCOM, and now my wife and I finally made a big move out east - and couldn't be happier with it!
In my free time I like doing pretty much all active things, whether that be playing hockey, softball, hiking, or even kickball. I truly hate sitting still, and would do almost anything to avoid it most days. I also consider myself a connoisseur of food(the type that comes out of trucks, stands, or small shacks). I'll try anything once. I am still searching for acceptable fajitas in Winston (pretty sure I won't ever give up). If you know of a place where I can get the ultimate hot dog, I'm accepting recommendations.
I enjoy travel, exploration, and anything new. In terms of medicine, I have a particular interest in sports medicine, and plan to go on to pursue fellowship training after residency. I love opportunities covering hockey, baseball, football, and potentially rodeos (still working on that one, courtesy of Andrea).
Come check out Wake! Most of the other people are cooler than I am.

School of Medicine
Hey! :) My name is Sydney Clark and I'm really happy and excited to be a third year here at Wake! I'm from Charleston, West Virginia, but went to undergrad at High Point University here in North Carolina. I then traveled back to WV to attend medical school at West Virginia University. Though I do love WV, NC is such an amazing place to live! Awesome weather, beautiful scenery, and so much to do! In my free time, I enjoy being outside hiking, exercising, doing photography, and spending time with family and friends. I also love exploring Winston - there's a ton of great restaurants and live music to check out!
In the interview trail, I was looking for a program with active and ambitious residents, a strong academic focus, and a palpable passion for family medicine. It was obvious at my interview that all of these were true, and it has only proved to be more true while getting to know everyone! The people are so compassionate, happy, and genuine, and have a true love for life and learning. I am looking forward to hopefully meeting you during interview season! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions!
| ||Andrea Gist, M.D.|
University of Texas Medical School
Welcome to the Wake Forest Family Medicine Residency website. My name is Andrea Gist and I am originally from Junction, Texas. I grew up there on my family's cattle ranch and was riding horses before i could walk. From there, I began competing in rodeos in events like barrel racing, pole bending, and roping. Unfortunately, my mom told me that I could not rodeo in college in hopes that I would actually give up my horse addiction and get an education. I went to Southwestern University, right outside Austin, Texas, and received my degree from there in Biology. It was at Southwestern that I realized I really enjoyed science and I first became interested in health care. I became hooked on the idea of being a doctor after shadowing some sports medicine physicians at the Ft. Worth Rodeo, and from there went to the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. I met my husband, Mitch, there and we got married in third year. I guess you could say that was the year of love, because that same year, I also found love with Family Medicine! I love this specialty because it truly offers the opportunity to do anything, every single day!
When it came time to fill out our applications, we applied broadly because of the couples match. We went on 15+ interviews, but at the end, Wake Forest was our obvious first choice! This program is filled with warm, kind, and inviting people who genuinely care about you as a physician AND as a person. The curriculum is top notch, and the location is perfect for a day off filled with hiking, camping, wine tasting, brewery-going, live music listening....really whatever you can think of! We were so pumped to match at Wake Forest in Family Medicine and Anesthesia!
So far, we are incredibly pleased with our choice to come to Wake, and have loved living in Winston. Mitch and i love the outdoors so we have had great times going on hikes, cooking out, working out, and exploring our new town together. I was able to bring my horse, Sam, so in my time off you may also find me with him doing trail rides or going to an occasional barrel race.
I am obviously still passionate about rodeo and would love to one day incorporate that into part of my practice through rodeo sports medicine. I also love procedures, rural medicine, and serving the underserved. I would love to answer any questions you may have! Seriously. Come check out Wake Forest! I love it here and am sure you will too!
|Lindsey Goeres, M.D.|
Wake Forest School of Medicine
Hi everyone! My name is Lindsey Goeres (last name rhymes with Paris). I was born in Kingston, NY but raised in the South. I grew up mainly in the Durham/Raleigh, NC area and went to NC State University for undergrad (Go Pack!!). While at State, I received my bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in psychology. I then went straight to medical school at Wake Forest School of Medicine. I loved my experience with the family medicine department while in medical school, that I decided to stay in Winston-Salem to complete my family medicine residency. I interviewed at several different residency programs, but kept finding myself comparing every program to Wake’s. The faculty and residents are true role models for the type of physician I would like to be one day and I knew I had to train here at Wake.
For the longest time, I was torn between Family medicine and Pediatrics. I knew I wanted to take care of children, but there was also a part of me that didn’t want to give up the chance to see adults as well. Family medicine gives me the opportunity to care for a variety of patients, in a variety of different settings, with a variety of different conditions. We are very versatile. I am interested in pediatrics/adolescent medicine and love providing primary and preventative services!
My husband and I got married in January 2014 while I was in medical school and he was finishing up seminary. He is currently an ordained Lutheran pastor. We love serving our community and love to stay involved in our church congregation. We also enjoy traveling (when we have time), spending time with family and friends, watching sports, and trying to cook (still working on this).
I am very honored to be a part of the Wake Forest family medicine residency program! Everyone is extremely friendly and supportive. You couldn’t ask for a better group of faculty and residents! Feel free to contact me with any questions you might have and I hope you will come and meet us in person someday!
| ||Maggie Hansell, M.D.|
Wake Forest School of Medicine
Hi! My name is Maggie, and I am one of the members of
the Wake Forest Family Medicine family. I grew up in New Bern, NC (home of
Nicholas Sparks and Pepsi Cola and the first capital of North Carolina). I
studied Economics at Davidson College, where I played soccer (go Cats and go
Steph Curry!). I then spent two years working as an investment banking analyst
for Bank of America in Charlotte. It didn’t take long to figure out that I
needed a career ripe with meaningful relationships rather than computer screens.
I’m happy I took that detour though because that is where I met my husband, Nick
(also a Davidson soccer player). After banking, I took my pre-medical
prerequisite coursework at UNC Charlotte. We spent the next year in Chicago
while I was applying to medical school and he was getting his MBA at Kellogg
(Northwestern). I loved the food and museums in Chicago, but I was happy to
move closer to home to attend medical school at Wake Forest. Last year, we
welcomed our son, Colin, to the world.
I didn’t realize until third year, when I rotated with our
department, that family medicine is the ultimate primary care field with the
greatest focus on patient care. I love that family medicine providers maintain
the broadest knowledge base, but have the opportunity to really dive into areas
of interest. When it came time to look at residencies, I couldn’t imagine
finding a better faculty, department or co-residents anywhere else. I looked
around, but nothing compared to my alma matter. I am so honored to be here and
look forward to three great years!
Outside of medicine, Nick and I like working on our house.
We bought in Ardmore, a great neighborhood surrounding the hospital that is
full of residents. So far, we have finished our basement, added a bathroom, renovated
the kitchen and are currently working on the patio. We love going to the
Greensboro farmer’s market on Saturday mornings and grilling whatever we find.
We enjoy every second with Colin, who is now over 1 year old (we have a great
family rendition of Wheels on the Bus with a dance)!
|Jennifer Harvey, M.D.|
Virginia Commonwealth University
School of Medicine
all! My name is Jen and I’m a 3rd year here with Wake Forest Family Medicine.
So far I am loving Winston and am excited to keep exploring! It’s a perfect
sized town filled with lots of unique restaurants, plenty of outdoor activities, and
super nice people. I feel so lucky to be a part of this residency program and I
am confident I will get the full spectrum training I was looking for. I
attended medical school at VCU in Richmond, VA, where I learned that my
interests in family medicine were broad including sports medicine, pediatrics,
and women’s health. This group of faculty, staff, and residents are SO
supportive and are truly fun to be around.
grew up in Roanoke, Virginia, which is only about two hours north of Winston. I
spent most of my childhood on the soccer field and volleyball court before
attending Virginia Tech to play soccer and major in chemistry (H-O-K-I-E-S
HOKIES)!! Playing soccer is still my most favorite thing. I recently had
a dream that Jill Ellis called to ask me if I would like to play on the World
Cup team while serving as the team doctor. That would be so awesome, right?!
I also love to play volleyball and tennis. When I am not trying to relive
my glory days, I am spending time with family/friends and most importantly,
being “super aunt” to the 3 (soon to be 4) most awesome kiddos you’ll ever
you have any questions about the program or about Winston-Salem, don’t hesitate
to email me!
|Holly Hoey, M.D.|
Baylor College of Medicine
Hello! I’m Holly Hoey, a very excited PGY-3 in the Wake Forest Family Medicine program. I’m originally from Marietta, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta) where I met my (now) husband in 9th grade band class. We got married after undergrad and moved to Houston, Texas, where my husband did some engineering in the oil industry, and I worked and did volunteer work for a couple years before starting medical school at Baylor College of Medicine.
When we started our search for residency programs, we were drawn to North Carolina because of its reputation for a medical culture that centers around primary care, and also because this is an absolutely beautiful part of the country! Wake Forest stood out as a place where the people genuinely like each other and love their work. Everyone is welcoming, down-to-earth, understanding, respectful, and (importantly) happy which creates an environment primed for excellent patient care and excellent education. I am so, so, so happy and grateful to have matched here.
Outside of medicine I love hanging out with my husband and dog, cooking (and eating), painting, running, and chilling on the couch with a nice TV show. Winston-Salem is an awesome place to live, with friendly people and all the necessary amenities but without the traffic and hassle. Ask me how long my commute is! Four minutes! Talk about icing on the cake. This is a town where work-life balance can be found.
I hope you’ll consider joining the Wake Forest family. It’s a good life.
|Kyle Judkins, D.O.|
Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine
Hi! My name is Kyle Judkins. I am one of Family Medicine third years! I am originally from Scarborough, Maine, which is about 10 minutes south of Portland. This small sea-side city is truly one of my favorite places on earth. I grew up in an artistic household, my father being a comedian and vaudevillian performer, my mother a modern dancer, and my sister moving to NYC to dance and eventually joining a modern dance company. So naturally, like any kid in this kind of family I learned how to unicycle and juggle and perform (I still have a unicycle hanging in my garage now…). I would like to think that my childhood has helped me become a well-rounded person and eventually a well-rounded physician.
Over the past 10 years I have been drifting south. I went to college at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts where I studied biology and chemistry. I became very interested in research, and got a job after I graduated in 2008 at Pfizer, Inc in Groton, Connecticut. In another 2 years I found myself in another research position at Covidien, Inc, in New Haven Connecticut. I met my fiancée Kaitlin while working in Connecticut in 2008. When it was time to consider other adventures, we looked south, as she was from Raleigh, NC. I went to medical school at Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Blacksburg, Virginia. I interviewed for family medicine residencies all over the country, but found home right under my nose here in Winston-Salem, NC. Kaitlin and I have really enjoyed exploring Winston and the nearby mountain towns of Asheville and Boone. We love to run and bike, hike and camp, and eat delicious food – all of which are possible to accomplish in Winston and nearby! I still have Yankee blood (NOT the baseball team, go Sox…), but the southern hospitality has been good to me!
I strongly believe in the Osteopathic philosophy of treating the whole patient- mind, body and spirit- and I have found that Wake Forest Family Medicine shares this ideology. I incorporate osteopathic manipulative therapy whenever I can to help my patients. I am very excited to be at Wake. I am humbled and inspired by the wealth of knowledge our faculty eagerly shares with us residents, helping to shape us into self-sufficient and effective physicians. I am equally impressed by my co-residents, all of whom are accomplished, unique, and fun people. I do not doubt for a second that I am in the right place for my training.
|Amanda Kinney, D.O.|
Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine
Hey there! I’m Amanda Kinney, and I am super excited to be a third year here at Wake Forest Family Medicine! I am originally from Norcross, GA, but have lived in SC since middle school. I went to College of Charleston in Charleston, SC for undergrad (Go Cougars!) and then moved back to Spartanburg, SC for medical school after taking a couple of years off to work in a research lab in Charleston. For medical school, I had the unique experience of being a part of the inaugural class at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Spartanburg, SC, which is only about 20 minutes from where my parents live. I was fortunate to have a substantial amount of primary care exposure during my 3rd and 4th year clerkships, which helped me to realize without a doubt that I wanted to go into family medicine.
I knew after my interview dinner with the residents that Wake Forest was going to be a tough program to beat. It was clear that the residents genuinely enjoyed spending time together and that they felt well supported by faculty. My interview day impressed me just as much, and I left Winston hoping that the feeling was mutual and that I would be coming back here for residency training. Since moving to Winston, the city has impressed me even more than I thought it would! There are so many fun things to do, from hiking to shopping to just walking around downtown. The program here is exactly what I had hoped it would be. The faculty is wonderful and my co-residents are awesome! I have enjoyed every minute of my time here so far.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time outdoors, working on home projects (I am a first time home owner here in Winston!), being entertained by my dog, Sadie, and visiting friends and family back home when time permits. I feel very blessed to live and work in such a well-rounded city with so many wonderful people.
| Nicholas Sgrignoli, M.D.|
Pennsylvania State University
College of Medicine
Hi my name is Nick Sgrignoli and Wake Forest was a perfect fit for my wife and me. I was born in northern Virginia, and moved to the Philadelphia area when I was ten years old. I am the youngest of three. My sister and brother now live back in northern Virginia, but I definitely have them beat here in Winston-Salem. Nice weather, nice people and plenty to do! My wife and I are both “northerners” but it’s been a great experience coming to the south. I attended Messiah College in central Pennsylvania and stayed in the area for medical school at Penn State Hershey COM. Pennsylvania was a great place to live but my wife and I were both eager to see something new. It was very important to find a place that was a good fit for both of us. During my interview we could both tell that the residents and staff were a quality group.
Since being here, everyone at Wake really made us feel welcome and comfortable. Initially I was unsure about coming to a big academic program for family medicine, but I am so thankful for my decision and I have already made so many friends with residents in different specialties. However, the main reason I chose Wake was the family medicine residents. I was shocked at how close the residents were and I found that the program does a great job fostering community. We are all supportive of each other and make sure to find time to hang out. The intern class accounted for a quick nine friends in my new town. Aside from a great staff, it’s also a nice place to live. I have enjoyed the warmer weather, and my wife is glad we still get four seasons. We both like spending time outside whether it be playing volleyball, biking, hiking or going to a baseball game downtown. I'm now involved in a fun Irish sport called Gaelic football. It's a fun mix of soccer and rugby, but most importantly I get to practice my Irish accent. I also enjoy skateboarding and soccer. Winston-Salem’s downtown has some cool little shops and restaurants to explore too. It seems like there is always some kind of event going on.
Overall, Wake has been a great fit for me. I wish you the best of luck as you go throughout your interviews and I hope that you find a program that is right for you whether it be Wake Forest or somewhere else.
