Caitlyn Richardson, MS1

Caitlyn is a first year medical student in Irvine, California, and a full time mama to her darling daughter, Charlee. She fuels her day with a healthy dose of coffee and Beyonce and enjoys running, boxing, hiking, and exploring. Caitlyn is considering specializing in surgery or dermatology to satisfty her affinity for aesthetics and precision.

In her own words,

"It is an honor and privilege to be able to pursue medicine. I've dreamt of this my whole life and there have been so many people along the way who have told me I would never make it. Being a single mother and a full time medical student can definitely be challenging, but motherhood is also what taught me the most throughout this whole journey. It has made me a better student, a better woman, and a better (future) physician.

Your appearance is the first thing people notice about you. As a professional, it's so important to show your patients and colleagues that you respect your work and your appearance. It shows that you care about what you do.
