Bio: tell us about yourself
My path to medicine had many detours, but I’m very pleased to be a M3 today. I graduated from Emory undergrad with a diploma in one hand and ticket to NYC in another. I couldn’t be more excited, but after just a few short years, my heart wondered back to medicine. I finished my sciences classes, crossed my fingers and applied to medical school. Along the way, I had my first son just a month after taking the MCATs! Then I had my second son in the spring of M1 year. I’m extremely thankful for the support I received from my classmates and the AU/UGA Medical Partnership throughout this process. I’ve learned a great deal about medicine and motherhood during the past few years that I would love to share with you!
