Williams Sabrina 2024

Sabrina Williams, MD (she/her)

Position: PGY-1

Sabrina is a born and raised mid-westerner, hailing from Allen Park, Michigan. She moved to Grand Rapids on the west side of the state (she can show you where on her hand map) to attend Grand Valley State University for undergrad. An avid runner since 10 years old, she ran on the cross country and track teams at GVSU. When not running, Sabrina studied Biomedical Sciences and minored in Women and Gender Studies through the Fredrick Meijer Honors College. After college, Sabrina worked for two years at The Hope Network as a rehabilitation technician and behavior technician with people recovering from traumatic brain injuries. It was here that Sabrina fostered her love of finding new and creative ways to play (all people – big and small love to play!)  and make patients’ days more enjoyable. It was also at The Hope Network that Sabrina met her wife, Tina!

Sabrina attended Michigan State College of Human Medicine in Grand Rapids, MI where she took a roundabout way to pediatrics. She also holds interests in endocrinology, infectious diseases, and primary care. At MSU, Sabrina was the co-president of the Medical School Pride Alliance and a member of the Academic Achievement Student Board. She also presented research on antimicrobial stewardship practices at the 2023 National Infectious Disease Week Conference. She was very excited to match at Brown to continue her pediatric medicine training!

Tina and Sabrina got married in April 2024 and live with their two pups Frank the standard poodle and Rufus the Shih-tzu/Pomeranian. They are board game and escape room enthusiasts, zoo lovers, and are eager to try new foods in Rhode Island. Sabrina is always looking for the perfect bowl of ramen!

Sabrina was drawn to the Brown’s advocacy work with the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities as well as their support of queer residents and faculty. During her interview day, Sabrina felt like she could really vibe with the residents and the program – everyone was so welcoming and talked very positively about their fellow residents!
