1. What is your specialty?
I am a pulmonary critical care physician.

2. Why did you want to become a physician?
I grew up watching my mother work as a physician. I was inspired by watching her take care of her community.

3. What is one aspect of the job that you find rewarding?
When I truly make somebody feel better, my job always humbles me and gives me perspective to life.

4. In your opinion, what’s the future of your field?
The future is bright for pulmonary and critical care with better outcomes from chronic lung disease, lung cancer, and early resuscitation measures.

5. What do you do to achieve work/life balance?
I do my best to separate my personal life from work. I give it my all when I’m at the hospital, but I disconnect when I’m with my family.
