One of my favorite days of the week is the day we have bible study! With 7 different schedules it is hard to coordinate sometimes... but last week was oh so good! We talked about our goals for the year, how we are going to grow closer in our relationship with the Lord, and how we hope to improve our prayer lives! Thankful for small breaks in the day to recenter our lives on Jesus ☺️

Was tagged to participate in the @medicineinmichigan #failforwardcampaign sharing inspiring stories of turning failures into success, so here's my story (including an addition from this week's AOA match results):
1◼ I had a baby my sophomore year of college, went through a divorce, and STILL managed to graduate with my class with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and a minor in Chemistry from Louisiana State University.
2◼ Due to a super low undergraduate GPA, I struggled to get into grad school and was placed on probation for the first semester. Despite this, I managed to do well in the program, ending with a 3.7 gpa, and received my Master of Science degree in Biochemistry from the University of Saint Joseph.
3◼ I took the MCAT 4 times and never scored higher than a 22. Multiple people said I would probably fail my medical board licensing exams. Passed all my required board exams on the first try, and even took and passed the USMLE (which is not required for DOs to take in order to be licensed).
4◼ Was told I should consider another field, and that my chances of getting into medical school would be slim. Well, it took me five years and 3 application cycles, but I entered the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine - Georgia Campus (GA-PCOM) in 2014, and I am now 3 months away from becoming Dr. Ward.
5◼ And of course since nothing on this path will ever come easy for me, I found out on Monday that I did not match into General Surgery. Instead, I matched into a Traditional Rotating Internship (TRI) with a general surgery specialty track at PCOM in Philadelphia, PA. This means I will be adding an extra year to my training and will have to reapply to begin a general surgery residency position next year, but it is a blessing to be able to say that I will be starting as a Resident Physician this summer (with a paycheck!).
🔶So as you can see, my path has been filled with what many would consider failures, but I've always managed to turn them into successes. My path might not be as straight as others, but I will continue to keep the faith, work hard, stay dedicated, and trust in God's plan for me. Hope this inspires and encourages some of you!🔶

Yesterday I had the opportunity to teach high school students about Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM)! OMM is a special tool us Osteopathic Physicians use to help treat and heal our patients. It involves using our hands, and the patients body to re-align and correct dysfunctions! Want to learn more? Feel free to message me and I’d love to chat!

Sometimes you show up to your exam in matching outfits 😂 thankful for these pals and the end of anatomy lab!

Please welcome my new study buddy Louis! He likes cuddling, raw hide bones, and nibbling on my fingers while I’m trying to type... •

Over the break I had a chance to pick back up with my favorite hobby, photography! Hobbies are a great way to stay grounded during medical school and beyond, and I hope to keep this one up for the rest of my life! •

Overjoyed because I’m one semester closer to becoming a physician!



He called you to this through the gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ // 2 Thess 2:14

Before every exam, a group of us gather to pray. We take a few moments in the calm before the storm to re-center, and remember why we’re here and Who brought us to where we are today. Thank you Jesus for an amazing group of believers who gather together to worship You. •

Meet Zoey, she thinks she’s helping me study...



Even though she gets in the way, she has been a huge blessing. The Lord definitely knew what He was doing when He gave us dogs. They are a perfect example of what unconditional love really looks like ❤️

Happy Birthday to my biggest support system. Thank you for putting up with my late nights and mental breakdowns, and I thank you that during those moments you always point me towards Christ. I thank Jesus every day for you, your guidance, your wisdom, and your patience. •

It was a long day (and isn’t over yet...) but I took a nice break to edit some photos! Now time to study for my 2 quizzes and 1 exam tomorrow 🙈

Rule #1 of med school, don’t take yourself too seriously! You are more than a grade. You are more than a class rank. You are more than a “student doctor.” When things get tough, take a step back and remember who you are. I am a daughter of Christ and a weirdo, surrounded by an amazing community of friends and believers who always re-center me and point me towards truth. •

Vi elsker at vår kiropraktor @slkleiv er verdens beste kollega, pluss ekstremt god på halebensmerte og smerter i øvre del rygg etter fødsel. Pluss så mye mer💖💖💖

This is my amazing colleagues @kvinnehelse and today we are meeting up for our weekly catch up on what happens in clinic. Lots of knowledge. Years of experience. We can't wait to develop further in 2018 with our amazing partners 🌱🌱🌱

I helgen har Ingvild og Mona holdt kurs i behandling av gravide, for en fantastisk gruppe osteopater. @norsk_osteopatforbund Dette setter punktum for en hektisk høst med kursaktivitet, og nå gleder vi oss til å fokusere på klinikken og de herlige pasientene våre. Sees på Majorstuen imorgen💖💖💖

Success Is a Journey 😊💲🛫 It will have obstacles, good times, bad times, and you will struggle many times along the way 👀⌨💪🗣 But... "It's Not About How Hard You Hit. It's About How Hard You Can Get Hit and Keep Moving Forward. That's How Winning Is Done" 💪👍🏆😊💲🤗❤
