Personal Quote: “Take a moment and contemplate the gift you were given and how you are using that gift, that calling, to make this world a better place.” This is a quote from one of my biology undergraduate professors. He always gave very insightful advice to us as future clinicians, that you can be whatever you want to be, but you must do something that you love and that makes you happy. This quote is something I hold close to my heart in the fact that I love helping my patients and I believe that I was brought into this profession to strengthen and educate others.
