Hi.

Welcome. Make yourself at home.

Happy Match Day!

Happy Match Day!

Big Bear Lake, frozen over and as beautiful as ever.

Big Bear Lake, frozen over and as beautiful as ever.

I am so proud of all of my fellow medical students who are matching into programs and specialties of their dreams today. It's truly such an exciting time.

I matched with an amazing general surgery residency at a Level 1 trauma center in Colorado, and cannot begin to explain just how grateful, relieved, ecstatic, and shocked I am (because what?! This is actually happening). I know there will be a lot of change, transitions, and craziness from here on out - endless hours and hours of work and greater challenges than I have ever known. But right now, I am resting in the moment. 

I took this picture in Big Bear with a friend last week. It has been such a heavy snow season that we thought why not - so we took a mini road trip only for a few hours of a snow day. What a funny thing, how one decision or one event can completely change the direction of the day or of your life. I felt so at peace in the stillness of the snow. And today - celebrating + resting in the stillness and promises of God. 

You guys. I'm going to be a surgeon.

Building [BIG] Faith.

Happy National Women Physicians Day!
