Welcome Back!

Welcome back!

Hey guys, so I know it has been a minute since I have posted on here…almost a year! Well, life aka PA school took over, and I had to prioritize my grades versus blogging, and of course, I chose my grades. A lot has happened over the past year. I recently graduated from PA school, took and passed the PANCE, offered my dream job (which I will touch on a future blog post), and moved back to Atlanta. I start work next Monday (cheers to my first REAL paycheck in almost 3 years)! Though, I am excited and elated to start work, but of course, those first day jitters are there. I am so blessed to be in the position that I am and thoroughly humbled to finally live in my purpose.

I am so excited to start blogging again and reconnect with all of you guys. Thank you, guys, for being patient with me (because I know I have been saying for MONTHS that I would post), and all the support over the past 27 months. To those who has reached out to me via Instagram and e-mail, continue to bombard me with your questions! I have a lot planned for the remainder of the year, which I am excited to share with you guys, and I am thrilled to share my experiences during PA school and post-PA school. To those that are applying to PA school, medical school, nursing school, etc. or those that are currently in the process, DO NOT give up and continue to chase your dreams!

Love xoxo

Day in the Life of an Emergency Medicine Rotation

Hello everyone!

I know it has been awhile (sorry!). I have been super busy with school, life and everything in between, so I know I have not been able to update you guys on what has been going on my journey through PA school.

I recently completed my first two rotations, which were Emergency Medicine and General Surgery!! I cannot believe that I am 25% finished with my rotations, and in less than 9 months I graduate! A lot of people have been asking questions about my typical day during my Emergency Medicine rotation, and I knew I wanted to make a post speaking about both rotations, so here it is!

Didactic Year Is Complete: What It Taught Me

15 months, 85 exams, 5 simulated patient events, and +2000 hours spent in Room 201 later, I can FINALLY say that I am finished with my didactic year! Even though I have a LONG way to go, I can finally check this accomplishment off in my small career to becoming a Physician Assistant.

In less than a week, I start my first rotation, which will be in the EMERGENCY ROOM! For those who do not know, I spent 4 years in the ER prior to PA school, and I love it! So, I am super excited (and nervous) about this rotation. 

Why Representation Matters .

Representation - 

  1. The action of speaking or acting on behalf of someone or the state of being so represented
  1. The description or portrayal of someone or something in a particular way or as being of a certain nature.
