Marriage & Medicine
If you've been following me or my work for any amount of time, it's probably no surprise to you that my husband, Beau, is in the middle of his Pediatrics Residency training. I distinctly remember scouring the internet for advice during Beau's last year of medical school, desperately searching for a glimmer of hope in what I deemed would be a miserable four years of residency. Honestly, I didn't find much. And what I did find was pretty discouraging and played into my deepest fears — that I'd be a "residency widow", that I'd have to do things alone, that I'd come to resent my husband and his career. I want to speak hope and positivity into this space because, while some elements of those fears can be true at times, Beau and I have found a lot of joy in both medical school and residency. Ultimately, I want to share the wisdom that I've gained over the past few years so that you'll feel a little less alone.
I envision this space as a community where we can share experiences and advice with one another.

I'd love to hear from you!
