As a 31 year old, I completed my adult cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship in Boston, won Fellow Of The Year, had to unfortunately part ways with the incredible classmates and mentors I met, and moved back home to Houston. I signed my first “real” job contract working in academic medicine and got situated back to living in the Houston Museum District.

Just prior to my 32nd birthday, I received word that I passed my advanced perioperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) boards making me a testamur and soon to be fully board in this discipline. After a 10 year vacation hiatus, I decided to go somewhere totally exotic and flew to New Zealand to celebrate my 32nd birthday. I’ve got a few more days here in Auckland before traveling to Sydney, Australia to round out this much needed get away. ๐Ÿ™‚

As a 32 year old, I will begin my journey as a new attending in adult cardiothoracic anesthesiology and critical care medicine. I can’t wait to see what opportunities this coming year brings as a physician and educator! ๐Ÿ™‚
