I will be sharing my journey to maintain the coveted “work life balance” in my position as a family medicine physician and researcher. Making choices about achieving professional success involves a continuous series of tradeoffs that begins with choosing a medical specialty by weighing the enjoyment of the day to day work, monetary compensation, student debt, and ability to have a family. I will discuss my experience with this process over the past 10 years since graduating medical school which has led me unexpectedly back where I started at Saint Louis University with both a fulfilling job and family life.
My husband and I have a 2-year-old daughter and are expecting our second daughter in May. We have been married for almost 8 years and my husband has been in remission from Stage 3 melanoma for the past year and a half. I am also a family medicine physician and researcher who joined Saint Louis University in 2016 after spending 8 years in Chicago. I currently provide primary health care to men and women at the St. Louis County Jail and have focused my research on the reproductive health needs of incarcerated women.
