Who or what inspired your career in Gastroenterology? I've always been in specialty practice medicine. Started before/during school in ENT, then ICU as an RN, then back to ENT as an RN, now NP in GI
What do you like the most about being in your specialty? GI is diverse to keep it interesting and challenging but still a specialty and narrow enough to feel more "expert" (I still feel very new in the field so certainly don't consider myself an expert yet) on the topic
Why are you a TSGE member? it's local (Texas) and provides excellent learning & networking opportunities.
Do you have a personal motto or favorite quote? Not really. But I've always been a believer in that things happen for a reason.
What is your favorite pastime? Being outside!!! My husband, doggo, and I LOVE camping/hiking and the beach or river!
