Favorite Quote: “A wise man speaks when he has something to say. A fool speaks because he has to say something.” – Plato (always stuck with me; had it as my email sig until very recently

Anything else you would like to add: I’m also from/ currently live in central Georgia and am married with a two-year-old daughter.

Tips:

  • Don’t be like me, be better than me.
  • Put family first: If this job or degree went away, what would you have left? I’m not an island. I have people who have sacrificed for me….and remembering that helps keep me grounded
  • Think like a faculty person instead of always as a practitioner
  • Find community to share your experiences, your struggles, what’s to come instead of suffering quietly
