What Might We Be Surprised To Know About You?  As restrained and careful of a person as I am, I habitually put little to no thought into major, life-changing decisions…not because I don’t care; it’s just the one exciting thing I do for myself. It’s not always intentional, but it keeps things interesting. 

What Motivates You?  Becoming a physician. I’m just chasing the feelings I experienced in Belize, but it is something I’ve always wanted, and once I got that reassurance, I was set.

What is a fun, quirky, or surprising Information about Yourself? I love art! I can’t draw that; don’t ask me to draw that. But I do love pottery, marbling, jewelry-making, print-making, tie-dying, and creating fun DIY projects, mostly home decor.
