My name is Padmashree Chaudhury Woodham, but most folks know me by my nickname "Champa". I grew up in Columbus, Georgia and graduated from Hardaway High School in 1997. After receiving a bachelor's degree from Emory University in 2001, I attended Emory University School of Medicine to complete my MD in 2005, and remained at Emory to finish my Residency in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2009. I then went on to complete a fellowship in Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012. I joined the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecoloty at the Medical Center, Navicent Health as the Director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine in August 2012.
Though I love my career choice and am proud of where my eduction path has led me, I am the proudest of my family life. I was fortunate enough to meet the love of my life, Daron Woodham, on Match.com in 2007 while I was living in Atlanta. We married in 2010 and our daughter, Rani, was born in October 2012. Little did we know at that time that only 10 months and 12 days later, in September 2013, our son Kash would arrive. (Yes, yes, I'm a high risk preganancy doctor who had both of her children at the age of 33 but they're not twins!) Our children both attend First Presbyterian Day School, Rani in Pre-K and Kash in 3K. My husband and I love raising our children in Macon, Georgia. Our favorite activities include attending our yearly beach week, watching Georgia football (Go Dawgs!), traveling, hunting (for Daron), attending Pure Barre (for me), and spending time with family and friends. And believe it or not, all four of us enjoy any opportunity to show off our moves on the dance floor!
Through work in the medical field as well as our personal lives, we have seen how Alzheimer's disease can affect families, loved ones, and the community. We must continue to work hard to come up with better ways to diagnose and treat this disease. My husband and I have been proud supporters of the Alzheimer's Association and have really enjoyed attending previous Dancing Stars of Central Georgia performances. I was thrilled when asked by Dr. Edward Clark (a committee member and former Dancing Star of Central Georgia) to serve as one the Dancing Stars of Central Georgia for 2018 so that I can be a part of such an important cause. I need your support to do my part! I ask that you please consider making a donation to the Alzheimer's Association. I know that with the support of our community, we can fight this disease and find a cure!
