Path to medicine:
I was a firefighter/ paramedic then a few years later I became a nurse. When I was younger my dad who died when I was age 11 said I was going to be a doctor. I said “oh no I’m not doing that because I want to be an engineer.” Then after being a paramedic and nurse I went back to practitioner school and “bam!” Here I am. I am a retired firefighter. I worked for 23 years in Oklahoma City.
I’m learning to fly airplanes and I am a glutton for punishment by going back to school again for my doctorate.
