Dr. Knights is originally from Canada. After completing medical school and internal medicine residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, she decided to move to Dallas to complete an Infectious Disease fellowship. During fellowship, she cultivated an interest in caring for patients with HIV and pursued research investigating health-care disparities in HIV patients with Kaposi’s sarcoma. Because of her great experience in fellowship, she decided to stay on as faculty. Outside of medicine, her interests include cooking, traveling, and spending time with family.
