Everyone: Are you ok? What's wrong? Night was that bad huh? What happened? .
Me: Ummmmmm.... actually guys I'm fine. That's how my face looks. Lol. Just your typical night shift. 😬
Double tap if you've had nights like that too! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’•

Ever see all those letters after an attending's degree? Those are special designations to indicate that the physician plays an active roll in their specialty field. I'm currently applying to become an FCCP (fellow of the American College of Chest physicians). Having the "FCCP designation recognizes you as a leader in CHEST, your profession, your institution, and most importantly demonstrates commitment to your patients."
Many of you already know that medicine is a life long learning profession, but once you're done with training there is still much to accomplish. I love setting new goals in my career because it keeps me excited and fresh!
Double tap to wish me luck! πŸ€—β˜˜οΈ

Boom! Hello Monday! I'm back and in full beast mode. This week we have a lot to cover. The senate is getting cray cray and there's a lot to discuss with women in medicine, as always.
What are you beasting through this week?

Check out my financial tips in the latest article for The D.O. magazine titled "Budgeting after your first doctor paycheck" (link in bio πŸ‘†πŸΌ)
I was really smart about my money after fellowship and was able to pay off all my 7% students loans in my first 2 years as an attending!
Would you guys like to hear more about my financial success in a blog post? Let me know in the comments below!

This week has been absolutely insane with super sick patients, but more strikingly YOUNG patients. My age. OUR age. Day after day as I walk out of the hospital the sun hits my body, finally warming it after a long shift. β˜€οΈThe contrasting dramatic sensation gives me an overwhelming feeling of gratitude. I get to walk out of this hospital. Feel the sun. Go home to my loved ones. Hug them. Kiss them. 😘Some of my patients can't, and some never will. It makes me so thankful, but also so very sad. They are MY age. It's too young to have such a hardship like this. All the things they're missing and will miss in life. Your youth should be spent worrying about stupid stuff like where that darn misplaced favorite lipgloss is. πŸ’„
On this #thankfulthursday I took in a glorious moment to soak up the sun before I rushed off my car, only to sit in hour long traffic to get home. πŸš—I just wanted a moment for myself, for my patients, for my youth. Sigh. It's been a long week.
Tell me about a patient case that made you think about life in a different way that brought out pure gratitude in the comments below. Let's all start another amazing thread of stories!!! πŸ’• love you guys! πŸ€— thanks for being so awesome!

For #thankfulThursday I wanted to do a #throwbackthursday all in one! This pic is from Nov 6, 2014 of THIS account (now renamed)! Did u know that my first blog FAILED? 😩I created it as a social network to get women in medicine to connect, but what I failed to realize is that what young women really want to see is someone who made it and can motivate them. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€βš•οΈI know what you see today is a successful instagram account that just hit 15k (thanks so much!) but what you don't see is all the work behind it. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Social media is deceiving. It looks like success happens overnight and I'm here to tell you, this all started in 2014! 😲
I still think about my networking idea and wonder if a relaunch is in order, especially after the magical thread YOU guys created when answering my question of what you would tell women of color about going into medicine (that post is SO amazing! It's my favorite!). πŸ’•What do you guys think? Would you like to see a discussion forum on my blog with a networking tool? Tell me in the comments below! πŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Edit: omg just realized it's Wednesday. πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚

The hospitals are an ice box during summer. Today I wore my iconic scrub jacket by @medelita_gram and it's seriously so comfy. Usually I wear some sort of fleece jacket but after running to a code blue the sweat feels gross 😩 This material is so much nicer. I also like the long length. Back in residency I used to wear a hoodie, but as an attending I would look silly. Double tap if you like this jacket on me! πŸ€—πŸ’•
