V-103 host Frank Ski's new fiance Dr. Patrice Basanta-Henry has an impressive resume.

Since 2010, she has worked at the Atlanta Maternal-Fetal Medicine offices in Decatur specializing in both maternal/fetal medicine and obstretics and gynecology.

According to the bio on the website for the group, Basanta-Henry is from Kingston Jamaica. She got her undergraduate degree at Howard University in D.C. and a Masters at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. She received her medical degree in Atlanta at the Morehouse School of Medicine in 2003 and completed her residency and fellowship at Emory University.

On her Linkedin page, she also noted that she does educational radio hosting on an online broadcast network called ReachMD. Among the topics she has discussed includes vaginitis, post-partum depression and prenatal care for women addicted to opioids.

Ski divorced his long-time wife Tanya a couple of years ago. Last month for Father's Day, he spoke to my colleague Jennifer Brett for the first time about the divorce and co-parenting their sons.

The veteran DJ and talk show host posted this note on Facebook this morning:

Thank You for all the well wishes. Patrice and I are humbled. I am always Thankful for God's Blessing over my family especially as I move forward into this new chapter.

A special Thank You to Melita and B&M Jewelers. You did that! @B&MJewelers
