“When I realized the vast opportunities that the medical field had to offer, I wanted to be certain that it was truly what I wanted to do. I met a fairly recent medical school graduate who just so happens to be a very close family friend. I reached out to him and he arranged for me to shadow one of his mentors. I became certain this was what I wanted to do. My time with her was a great learning process. I truly believe the role of a physician is very fitting of my skill-set and personality. My inquisitive nature has made me a lifetime learner, and the opportunity to work in different specialties and grow as a healthcare provider is even more appealing to me”.
