I am honored to be featured on Inspiring Women in Surgery: Faces of Surgery, an online platform dedicated to motivating women to succeed in the male-dominated profession of surgery.
For years during my education and training, I wished that I had more female surgery mentors to model myself after. Now, I am trying to BE the role model I always wanted. Thank you Inspiring Women in Surgery for showing the next generation examples of how surgery is an equal opportunity field where the only thing that matters is being a good person who is good at your job.
I encourage you to look at this interesting page (linked above, by clicking on my photo) and read the stories of dozens of amazing women who work in all aspects of the field of surgery. There are many ways to contribute to the science and humanity of surgery, and the women featured on this page provide rich examples for anyone needing a bit of motivation and inspiration.
