I have zero regrets about the career path I’ve chosen, even now after living through a pandemic, several moves, and trying to balance work with having children.
I honestly don’t remember when I decided medicine would be a good fit for me, only that I wanted to do something to get me out of my small town and pay the bills. I’ve always been fascinated with how the human body works, and as a child was in and out of hospitals myself so maybe it was a natural progression.

I have a lot to thank being a Doctor for. I wouldn’t have met my husband if we hadn’t worked in the same rural northern hospital together (he was a paramedic who kept bringing me extra work. Lucky for him he was cute 😉

I have met so many wonderful people and experiences as a result of my career it’s hard to pick just one, but do I have regrets? None.

I do have hopes and dreams for the future of medicine though.

I hope one day the people who are providing the care are also the ones who make the decisions. Not the lawmakers, not the administrators. The doctors, nurses, community health workers.

The people on the ground doing the day to day work, who see the people, who know what is needed; not nameless faceless decisions being made by people who don’t know.
Now that is a future I can’t wait to see.

Prepared for an Apocalypse

I knew from an early age I wanted a career that could pay me in chickens in case of an apocalypse. Outside of raising them myself, family medicine was the best fit for me—not as many chickens as I expected as a kid, but over the years, I have earned more than my share of jam, veggies, and thank you cards to more than satisfy me!
