I fell in love with serving and helping people—kids and teens in particular—when I was part of a youth ministry group through middle school, high school, and college. I wanted to be a source of support, of joy, of peace, to my peers and to those who looked up to me. When I went through my psychiatry clerkship in my third year of medical school, it took me back to my ministry days of being able to walk with people through some of their most intimate struggles. It gave me the opportunity to listen to patients’ stories beyond their physical ailments, and I found that sometimes having a listening ear and someone on your side can bring about relief and healing before a medication or therapeutic intervention even enters the picture. In psychiatry I can cultivate my greatest strength of developing supportive and collaborative relationships with my patients and their families.
