I am a 2012 graduate from the College of William and Mary with a major in Neuroscience and a minor in Mathematics. With a proclivity to psychiatry, I joined the Child Psychiatry Branch at the National Institute of Mental Health for a two-year Post-baccalaureate clinical research fellowship.
After Commissioned Officer Training in July, I will be attending the Uniformed Services University the next four years to become a military medical doctor (from 2nd Lieutenant to Captain when I graduate). I figured that blogging would be an interesting opportunity to share how a non-prior military female transitions into military medicine, and on the plus side, it’s the perfect way to communicate with my friends and family. I am particularly interested in mental wellness and philosophies of life, so you will see quotes sprinkled throughout my posts that I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
