I was always the child who could fix broken things around the house and I enjoyed the manual dexterity required to repairing things. In college, I was blown away by the intricacy and logical construction of the human body during an anatomy course. Surgery appealed to me as a way to both fix a body that is broken and to help people emotionally through a difficult time in their lives. Taking care of children and their families, getting them better and back to their usual shenanigans has been immensely satisfying.
