Of Jamaican heritage, Dr. Peart was born and raised in New York. She has traveled to and lived in many places including St. Lucia, Chicago, Flint, Michigan, and now Baltimore. Dr. Peart and her husband love the city and enjoy raising their son in a town not far from The Johns Hopkins Hospital. They are foodies at heart, so it was very easy for them to adjust because Baltimore has tons of great places to dine. “The fellowship has afforded me an opportunity to expand my knowledge base in ways I never would have imagined and to work side by side with the experts in the field,” she says. “I have also grown to love virology, and the study of measles (my new favorite virus!) and the immune response it generates.”
