From the Provider
"I didn’t go straight from college to medical school to residency and I didn’t know until late in college that I had an interest in medicine. I worked a bunch of different jobs – some were good, some weren’t, my husband was in the military and went to war, I smoked and I quit (it wasn’t easy), my mom had breast cancer, I had a baby, life happened with its ups and downs. All of those experiences that make life messy make me a better doctor. I may not share the same experiences with a patient, but I can empathize and offer a sympathetic ear without judgement. For each patient, I ask myself: 'how can I help this person, at whatever point they're starting, to be a little healthier, to be happier, to worry less? What can I do to support them?' Life is hard. The best part of my job is when I can make someone's life easier."
