On July 1st, I will start a journey I have been striving for since my earliest days. During the past five years, I have attained several professional positions that solidified my decision to pursue medicine. I held four research internships, two scientific publications, seven leadership positions, and over 200 hours of volunteer service. .
Today, I am elated to have achieved the first step of my life-long journey of becoming a physician. It is with great pleasure that I announce I have been accepted to my top choice for medical school, University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am beyond excited, and anticipate learning the best privileges of all: to heal. I thank the people closest to my heart for being my support system and continuously encouraging me to keep working upwards. You are my strength & my guidance. .

Do you see that door straight ahead?
This area is the OR cockpit (unsure of the exact technical term) where 6 operating rooms connect.
I went out the back of the neurosurgical OR to grab a warm blanket and discovered this sweet space.
Walking to that door I passed orthopedic, colorectal, and cardiac surgery.
I inconspicuously peeped through the OR suite windows and was amazed to see knee replacement, hip replacement, and some other interesting surgeries. 💩
What is the coolest surgery you’ve seen? I’d love to hear your story!
I’m answering any questions you may have in a Q&A on my story tonight.
Head over to my page and check it out! ❤️ ...

But really why is it always harder to get back into the swing of things after a vacation, or after a few days away from the office? I love what I do and I love the patients I get to work with, but something about not 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 to wake up early in the morning and just being able to do what you want when you want is so refreshing. Not only is it a nice little reset to get back on track, but it’s also a little reminder that having a work life balance is soo important. We need to remember that life is short, and that we must always make time for ourselves, not just our professions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

All smiles as I walk out of orientation for 4th year! WOW. Where has the time gone!? A lot of work still left to be done, but so excited (and nervous 😅) to see what 4th year has in store for me. But first, vacation! #M4#FinalLap#whitecoatchronicles ...

Last night I graduated from my dream residency program. I truly have been at a loss for words. It’s been 23 years of school, training, hard work, and sacrifice and I’m finally here, completing the very last portion of this life goal. Attending life here we come!! God is so good. 💕🍾 ...
