Meet the Doctor

(upbeat music) My name is Evans Valerie, I am a pediatric surgeon here. I previously worked at the um, at LSU, the Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, and I worked there for thirteen years. I have an old friend who used to work with me in New Orleans that asked me to come and look at the job here and I came, he wasn’t even here, I came, I interviewed and I just love the hospital organization that I was introduced to and I liked the area. I moved from Jamaica when I was a young teenager and we moved to New York, in Brooklyn, and that’s where my mom and sister are right now. But I’ve done, I did some of my training in Toronto, I went to college in Rhode Island, but the longest I've ever lived in one place was actually in Louisiana and that was for thirteen years. So I do a lot of sporty things, I play tennis. I’m learning how to fish. I have a kayak. Just stuff outside. I eat...well in Louisiana I ate out a lot so I’m learning how to do that here and I listen to a lot of music. (upbeat music)
