Holiday travel must-haves

Tuesday, December 5, 2017

  Oh holiday travel… how I love you so! It seems like the holidays were always filled with travel, for me. Since I went to undergraduate college in Arizona, it always required a flight home to Michigan for the holidays. I was a pro at checking in for Southwest flights and lining up hours before, in order to get the seat I wanted. Always donned in a Juicy Couture outfit and UGG boots (yes I lived in the desert and it was extremely hot and UGGs were not necessary), I braved the flights to and from Arizona State each year…

This Friday… is Black (cue the holiday tunes)

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

  WHO IS EXCITED???!!!!   This girl sure is! I am pretty much obsessed with shopping. I may not be a fashion blogger, but I LOVE sharing my outfits and style with you guys! When I was in school for a billion years, I wasn’t able to buy anything nice, or expensive. Only recently have I upped the ante with my shopping excursions and man it feels good!! This is the first year (legit, since before I started college), that I feel prepared and ahead of the game! Now that I am done with training, I have a little more…

How I knew I wanted to be a doctor

Wednesday, November 8, 2017

One of the most common questions I receive. How did I know I was making the right choice, in going to medical school? I grew up believing that I was going to be a doctor.

The big day, your interview (part 2: interview etiquette/questions)

Saturday, November 4, 2017

  Of course, deciding what to wear to your medical school or residency interview is difficult enough. But now… you have to nail the interview! A bangin’ suit won’t get you anywhere if you can’t navigate through all of those questions and awkward social encounters.   Step 1: Be Confident    The first step is presenting yourself with confidence. Smile. Be friendly. Sit up straight. Don’t fuss with your hair or outfit. Small talk is fine, but don’t be too intrusive with other applicants (i.e. what were your test scores, where else have you gotten in, etc- how annoying). Avoid…

Should I get the flu shot?

Monday, October 23, 2017

  The flu… aint nobody got time for that! Yep, I get the flu shot. Every year. It doesn’t matter if I never had the flu, the years that I didn’t get the shot. I can’t take any chances in my workplace. Calling off sick is not an option, so I do everything I can. Just because I’m a doctor, doesn’t mean that needles don’t scare me. I’m not a needle-phobic, but every year I do find myself trying to put off my flu shot and any other blood work or vaccines I may need! Vaccinations may be a touchy subject…
