My name is Will Ellis and I grew up in Asheville, North Carolina. For my undergraduate studies I went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I studied Sociology. After college I worked in real estate and spent sometime living overseas in Malaysia before deciding to pursue a career in medicine. I returned to UNC for medical school and found that I loved the field of emergency medicine. My wife and I have been married for eight years and have two young boys that were born during medical school and will be having our first girl in the first few months of residency. I enjoy fly fishing, backpacking, golf, soccer, and spending time with my family.
