Introduction: Hi my name is Mariah Hukins and I’m originally from NC and am a blue devil at heart. I’ve done all of my schooling on the east coast so this West world is new to me. Fun fact: My family and I drove from Raleigh, NC to ABQ, NM in 3 days for my relocation--lots of plains and cows.

Interests

  • Pathology Interests: Forensics, diversifying medicine, history of medicine, narrative medicine through art.
  • What do you like about living in New Mexico: Living in New Mexico is cool mainly because you always can look up and see the Sandia Mountains in the background. But more importantly the FOOD is so good. Still a southerner so I like my green chili on the side. Also there’s always something to do, whether it be an artwalk downtown to hiking to the shops of Old Town.
  • What do you like about living in New Mexico: As a San Diego native, I love the warm, dry climate of New Mexico. The cost of living is substantially less than many other large cities, especially on the coast. Traffic is generally non-existent. Also, New Mexico has a number of great outdoor activities that are readily available throughout much of the year.
  • Interests Outside of Pathology: Painting, drawing, museum going, Netflix-ing, concerts, concerts, and more concerts…oh yeah and sleeping.

Why I enjoy the pathology program at UNM

FORENSICS!!! UNM has a unique partnership with the OMI which sees very unique cases here in NM. I want to become one of the best Forensic Pathologists and this is the prime place to learn.
