I stand, in white coat, holding out my hand, and shards appear to leave my body as if I am disappearing

2020 New Year confession: I’ve left clinical medicine.

(and it’s taken A LOT of deep breaths for me to actually post this, but I need to do it to move on.)

I haven’t given up on the healthcare field. I am simply ‘reinventing’ what I can do to impact it.

Sound sci-fi? It is’t. It’s my reality.

You see, healthcare is broken. For me, it was no longer a feasible option to stay practicing within it, as a primary care doctor, the way it’s headed. I absolutely loved my patients, and the relationships made, but I was no longer in control, or truly making decisions. I

predict that, if change isn’t made, more doctors will follow suit.

But here’s the silver lining: I HAVE started to make a difference. I learned how to leverage the ‘online‘ (a reference to the Upside Down, for those Stranger Things fans among you). I’ve created a startup that’s already gained incredible momentum, in just 3 years of existence, and I’m now striving to make a difference the best way I can – using my creativity and the skills I’ve sharpened over this past decade.

Will I make it? Who knows. I’ll sure try. But if I won’t, it’s ok, because I have optimism – and passion – on my side. I’ll just get up and try again.

I’ll be exploring my new world along with you, with new lenses (ones I never wore because I was never so passionate about learning like I am now)- taking you with me to meet new people, hear cool ideas, and soak up exciting experiences.

Today, I am committing myself to the pursuit of innovation, through entrepreneurship. To learn everything I can about what’s out there, that I’ve never seen before. To take you with me.

So.. will you join?

This isn’t Goodbye. This is Hello.
