MY MINI BIRTHDAY GETAWAY

Monday, May 15, 2017

If you’re like me, you love birthdays. I don’t just enjoy my own birthday; I enjoy ALL birthdays! I feel birthdays are like holidays. They bring friends and family together, there is always good food (and hopefully cake), and it’s a day to reflect on the positive things in life.     After 31 years, I feel like I have finally found a good life balance, and my true happiness. This year, it wasn’t about what I was doing or whom I was hanging out with. It didn’t matter how many people came to my party or if there were…

Boston

Sunday, May 7, 2017

This May marked my second trip to Boston, MA. My first visit was for an Emergency Medicine conference, so I didn’t have much down time. This trip was vacation-related so I was able to enjoy the city AND happened to be traveling with someone who knows Boston very well 😉 I try to travel light and comfortable, but the East Coast weather always gets me! I opted for multiple pieces of luggage, to ensure I could fit all of my wardrobe options, and enough room for workout clothes! I was really excited to stay at The Lennox Hotel, which was…

Now you can finally start your professional career in medicine. Oh but wait, we just need you to also pass (and do well) on just a few more exams… I’m going to discuss the MD path here, since that’s what I’m most familiar with. STEP…

How to choose a major

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I bet all of you starting fresh in college are wondering, “What should I major in”? The simple answer… whatever you want!! This is a common question I receive on social media. I was very concerned about my major, when I started college. After contemplating a major in dance, French, and psychology, I finally decided on a major in biology. I mean… can we say boring? No offense to all you biology-lovers out there! I love science, too! But if I could do things over, I would’ve chosen one of the alternatives I listed above. College is your last chance…

EM and Fitness

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Being a doctor means being an advocate for good health. As an Emergency Medicine physician, I care for multiple patients with a variety of complaints, everyday. Whether I’m evaluating a patient with chest pain, high blood pressure, anxiety, or who is pregnant, I counsel them all about important lifestyle factors that I believe can help prevent worsening of current or future disease risk. One of the most important of these lifestyle factors is regular exercise. It is well known that regular aerobic activity can increase energy level, improve mood, and decrease risk for many medical conditions. Despite knowing this association…
