Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) - I spent my first weeks of life in an NICU and the journey started in one of these beds, eventually to my lil incubator 🙈👶🏻. 33 week old baby coming into the world too soon🌎. I think having this history (even though I don’t remember it) is what started my curiosity of working in healthcare🏩. My interest for pain management💉 and research extends into an interest for infant pain! I hope to one day dive into work in that field🌙

had a couple rough days in the #emergencydepartment this week where i felt tired, like what I was doing didn’t make a difference and like I’m just sitting behind a computer documenting rather than practicing any real medicine. i needed to regroup, eat a ton of carbs 🥖and cheese 🧀 ( #EmotionalEater ) and get back to my happy place 🏋🏽‍♂️. #wellness in #medicine and #residency is really important especially with the stress of crazy hours and all the responsibilities that quickly pile up on you. I’m lucky enough to have 2 days off so I can get into the right mindset before starting 2 weeks of nights 🌙. what’s your #wellness?

I had a bad morning because my laptop was giving me problems during a timed quiz 😔 I was freaking out and barely finished it on time. I also got a minor nosebleed during the following lecture. Even with a bad start, my day started to improve because I finally received my #whitecoat! 👩‍⚕️ Also, one of the lecturers accidentally missed class so now she's giving us a little less material for our test next week 😅

I’ve come to the realization that what really fulfills me, what really makes me feel organically happy, is making those around me happy, especially my friends and family (instafam included). Especially if I’m ever in a negative headspace, being able to directly observe the positive consequence of an act of kindness grounds me and reminds me the beauty of every day life 🦋. I’m not sure if making others happy to make myself happy makes me selfless or selfish. Maybe we can call it benevolent selfishness? 😉 What makes you happy?

You can’t let yourself get discouraged in school. It’s tough going to lab for 3 hours, then lecture for another 4 hours, followed by hours in the library. You know what’s tougher: knowing you could have done more.

Everything you dream about is within your reach, you just have to actively and relentlessly pursue it, day-in day-out.

Why not you? Believe in yourself, you’re exactly where you need to be in life. And if you don’t feel that’s true, change.

I hope you all have a great weekend! I’ll be meal prepping tomorrow then catching up on lectures from the previous week, in addition to preparing for the coming week!

What are you doing this weekend?

Was shopping at Michael's the other day and spotted a bunch of Stabilos, mildliners and 2 for $1 washi tapes 😍 I might just need to restock my mildliners and try out some new pens! 😍😍

Med students can have fun too! 😂 Some photos from last night’s boat cruise; I’m gonna miss this once class starts next week 😬

I hiked a 14er yesterday; one of the tallest peaks in the US! It’s called a 14er because the peak is at least 14,000 feet above sea level. Overall it was a 9.5 mile hike filled with steep and rocky terrain. •
This is my 8th 14er, and my body’s ability to withstand such a beast of a hike never fails to amaze me. No matter how hard the terrain became or how thin the air got, my legs kept moving and my lungs kept breathing. The human body is so resilient y’all.

Have you ever done anything that left you on amazement of your own body?? I wanna know!

📝Making the medical school list, and checking it twice. On the blog today, I discuss how to choose the medical schools to apply for. .
.
.
Maybe I am still on a high from the 🌹Bachelorette finale, but I can’t help but draw the parallel about how the application cycle for medical school is about finding “The One”. The One isn’t necessarily perfect (none of them are), but is the perfect match for you: supportive, similar goals, makes you feel comfortable, and challenges you to be the best version of yourself. This kind of mentality going into the process helps demystify the frightening AMCAS, and encourages you to learn just as much from the journey. .

I finally got the chance to crack open this suture kit from @simvivomedical this week and practice my suturing! I kind of love it (the kit and the art of suturing.. yes it’s an art!) lol
My entire class has a check off on our suture skills in a week right before we head off on our first rotations (although not sure I’ll be suturing much in my psych rotation 🤷🏽‍♀️) so I’m glad to have this kit to practice with and will continue to use it throughout the next year!

🌈👩🏼‍⚕️👧🏼Family time is so important ☀️🙌🏻🌈 We’re enjoying summer evenings this year to the max. @joey2thej is training for a trail race so that means a lot of mom and June time. I don’t know who benefits the most from our evening time—me and June ... or dad having some alone time 😆 Yes, we have an unconventional family in the fact that I work and Joey stays home with June, but we place so much importance on family. Joey is still the head of our household. I still love to be mom. June is one major daddy’s girl. It works. 💕 .

We may not have won the Dean’s Cup but we were first in line for food. That’s a win in my book. •


It was great to continue to get to know the people in my class and other upper level med students! We played jenga, dodgeball, soccer, and other games. Some of the challenges involved operation (the board game) and putting a skeleton together anatomically correct. It was a great time! In the mist of studying don’t forget to spend time with your peers and future colleagues! •

RN🔜MD
📆A typical Monday starts w/ screwing up and getting yelled at. As the days progress, you really begin to find moments where your input matters✔️

This week I was able to take that opportunity. I listened and spoke up for my patient🗣️

I quite literally felt the vibe change in the room in that moment. Rather than just a follow up, it switched to saving his/her life. Just because of a few words and a little extra time⏱️🤓

Work/life balance time with my dermatologist buddy @ericsaverson .*** The next lifestyle specialty I'm going to spotlight is derm.*** Dermatology is a very competitive specialty to get into. Salary is mid to high 6 figures with some sub specialties making up to 7 figures. Dermatologists primarily manage diseases and disorders of the skin. Residency is 4 years after medical school. Work hours are between 35 and 45 hours a week. ▪️

Road Trip Day 3 = Athens, GA ➡️ Roanoke, VA (6.5 hrs)
Absolutely amazing day! 😁 Started off the morning with a beautiful hike at Tallulah Gorge State Park, where we obsessed over the waterfall, bluff, and gorge views! 😍 Then we stopped for a delicious lunch in downtown Asheville, NC, which was super nice and adorable! ❤️ With a good meal in our bellies, we hit the road again and headed to Roanoke, VA. During the drive through NC and TN, we were surrounded by the Smokey and Blue Ridge Mountains... the view was insane! 🤯 Super happy I decided to take the longer route along the Appalachian Trail, totally worth it! 👌

Coconut chips have become one of my favorite study snacks. Unfortunately I haven’t had many insta worthy meals because I’ve been spending all of my time in the library as my thesis is due a week from Monday. I’m really excited about presenting it and hopefully getting it published because while the topic (traumatic injury) isn’t new, there hasn’t been a comprehensive analysis done in the county where my research is based. I hope the results will be useful in the context of global health, global surgery and beyond. Anyway, real food pictures will resume after the end of August! What have you all been doing or working on recently?

Sometimes we can be our worst critics - especially when we are chasing our dreams! And we absolutely do not celebrate enough! I know I have learned it is SO important to celebrate the small things just as much as the big things along the way to success! 🤩 so tell me - do you give yourself enough credit for what you have accomplished and overcome? 💛

I’ve been stressed like crazy this week with trying to balance everything going on in my life, learning how to be patient, dealing with debilitating back pain and working on the house. 😬 So really trying to recuperate this weekend with some relaxation and self care. This means spending time with family & friends, reading good books, burning candles, bubble baths, dyeing my hair, eating good meals, getting plenty of sleep, and just taking a break from the stresses of the world as much as possible. Do any of y’all have such a hectic week that you NEED a weekend to recuperate? If so, what’s your go to for relaxation? 👩💆🏼‍♀️📖🕯️ #stress #relax #reading #candle #family #friends #selfcare #food #happy #love #weekend

Happy Friday Everyone! I’m really excited because I have a rare “golden weekend” starting tomorrow. That’s when you get two days off in a row without any call duties or backup call. I don’t know what I’ll be doing but it will definitely involve leaving town for a couple days.

"Treat 'em like family." - Dr. Howard, Team Leader

[ Transitioning ]
First semester of D3 year in the books! Every year in dental school so far has presented with new challenges to overcome. 💪🏼
This summer, the challenge was transitioning into clinic and working with patients about half the week, all while still taking a moderate course load.
·
Here are some things I learned so far:
- Comprehensive Oral Exam: $105 (and arguably the most important appt)
- Periodontal Maintainance and Perio Charting: $60 (a necessary evil 🙄)
- Finally getting to build relationships with our patients and apply the didactic knowledge we've gained so far: Priceless. 👩🏼‍⚕️👨🏻‍⚕️👩🏾‍⚕️
·
What have been your challenges so far?

TGIF: The Grind Includes Fridays... Always has, always will. My preceptor is on call for the whole weekend. He started letting me deliver babies this week but I’m still praying that I don’t get called in at 3 am and oversleep (again 😖). In the meantime, gotta catch up on studying for the Ob/Gyn shelf—which is next Friday for me!!

BREAKING NEWS:
NYU made tuition free for all medical students, and everyone’s cheering about it. I think this is a great opportunity for pre-med students continuing their medicine journey. Awesom @nyuniversity 🖊️📁💊

We don't all fit the Insta perfect picture, the slim and perfect body, but one thing I have found in myself is the ability to embrace who I am and not to be so hard on myself for not being a size zero! If anything be healthy, stay strong....and be happy, but never change for anyone else. 😘

Watching the sunrise yesterday at the beginning of my BLS clinical shift. I'm almost at the end of EMT training, but believe it or not, yesterday was the first time I rode in an ambulance.
I felt so nervous on my way to each call, not knowing what to expect. Would it be dangerous? Would I do something wrong? My stomach was doing somersaults, and riding backwards in the ambulance didn't help.
But once we were with a patient, I felt calm and just fully present. The ability to help care for and keep that person safe shut out my doubts for a short time, because there was no room for them.
Many things have come easily to me over the years, but the environments I'm used to have always been highly controlled. There is nothing easy about this for me. Yet with every step forward, my internal monologue shifts from "I can't do this" toward "yes I can." As with all parts of life...we have to give ourselves time to learn before we discount our abilities.
Patience and persistence.

It’s so ironic how I was never “good” at ortho throughout PA school, there were sooo many musculoskeletal topics on the NCCPA blueprint that I just couldn’t understand or get a good grasp on... Yet, here I am - today, 7 months out of PA school and feeling so honored and truly humbled for having an opportunity to explain key concepts to students, concepts that I never had a good understanding of until I learned and lived true ortho! .
.
Also, thank you @pas_of_mercer_2019 for sending us such great students! @brandoncook33 you were definitely an A+ student! Hope you aced that ortho exam!

My favorite work bag?? This is tough. For many years, I've been a long champ supporter. I love the le pilage large bag. It has not pockets so I have to constantly dig to find things but it holds so so so much. This is really a pro/con. Some people like multiple organized compartments, but I don't mind the lack of organization because it can hold SO much. I’ve filled it with so much crap and it still doesn’t break. It’s incredibly durable. And it just looks so classy. I fool everyone when I use it. The downside is it’s expensive, no pockets, and has no computer pocket. I use my computer case so it’s not a huge deal for me. I do have to admit that I've started alternating with my hershel backpack but the long champ bag does provide a more professional #ladyboss feel
