1. Why did you pursue medicine?I had an interest in science and medicine from a very young age. I was fascinated by the amazing way the human body worked and learning everything I could about it!
2. What made you choose pediatrics?I chose Pediatrics because I am a big kid at heart! I love spending time with children of all ages and being involved in their lives.
3. What do you love most about your job?My favorite part of my job is developing a relationship with my patients as I watch them grow up. I love talking sports, interests, trips, etc with my patients and getting to know them as people. It is also a lot of fun to now get to take care of children of my former patients and continue to be involved in their lives.
4. What would you tell a younger girl who wants to be a doctor?I would encourage any girls interested in medicine to go for it! Don’t ever compromise on your dream because it may be too hard or take too long. Set a goal and work hard to achieve it. It will definitely be worth it in the end!
