We are thrilled to welcome a new doctor to the Twin City Pediatrics family.  Dr. Stephanie Forrest joins us this summer after competing her residency training at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte.   But Dr. Forrest is no stranger to Winston-Salem (she spent eight years here for undergrad at WFU and then medical school at Wake Forest School of Medicine).

Here's some more background information Dr. Forrest shared with us:

I grew up just outside of Seattle, Washington, where I began nurturing a passion for both medicine and children at an early age. I was known as the "neighborhood babysitter" and as soon as I was able to drive, coached gymnastics at "The Little Gym."
 
My first visit to Winston-Salem was for a look at Wake Forest University. I was immediately taken with the city's beauty and charm. There was little doubt that I would ever stray too far from the East Coast again. I spent the next eight years in Winston as I completed both my undergraduate education and medical school at Wake Forest.
 
During my three years of residency training at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, I married the man of my dreams, Chris, and we grew our family with our first dog, Cubbins. We are all thrilled to call Winston "home" once again.

I have a special interest in the management and prevention of childhood obesity, care of former premature infants (all those NICU graduates), and in international medicine.  I spend time getting to know my patients as individuals and understanding their specific needs to that I can deliver truly personalized care every step of the way. I am a strong advocate of proper nutrition and physical activity as the keys to a healthy and fulfilling life. I enjoy working with children and their parents to get started down the right path as early as possible.

Outside of Twin City Pediatrics, I enjoy reading, running, camping and hiking, baking, crafts and nearly any other outdoor project or adventure. You can also find me cheering on the Seattle Seahawks, the Carolina Panthers and the Demon Deacons. We also love to travel and I look forward to continuing my experiences in international medicine.
