Why did you choose your profession?:
I chose the PA profession because I want to make a difference in people lives. I love medicine and taking of people during their most vulnerable time is an absolute honor. Also, having the flexibility to switch between specialties is an added bonus.
Who was/is your inspiration?
My cousin Sabrina ( an ICU PA)c is who introduced to the profession 16 years ago and is also who inspired me to become a PA. I always knew that I wanted to work in medicine but I was never quite sure as what. When I found out about the PA profession and started doing my research, I immediately knew that this was the ideal career choice for me.
Fun Fact 1:
I absolutely love the "Fast and Furious" franchise.
Fun Fact 2:
I am really good at impersonating people.
Do you have any advice for others interested in entering your field?
For those entering the field, I would say to always practice empathy. One of the my favorite biblical verse that I live by is " Let all that you do, be done in love" - 1 Cor 16:14
