  • Spring break!!! I actually planned to do nothing. And it was amazing. I'm usually great at planning too much, so it was a welcomed relief to get some rest, watch some movies, ski, and see some people I love.
  • AAO Convocation 2017! I went to the American Academy of Osteopathy Convocation this year, held in Colorado Springs. There were workshops and lectures for students and physicians to help us further our knowledge and osteopathic skills. It was a great opportunity to network and see how other D.O.'s are using osteopathic medicine with their patients. I'm planning to (eventually) write a whole post about my experience at convo because I have so much I want to share about it! 
  • I attended Ultrafest at my school to learn more about ultrasound. Check out a quick photo and description of the day here. 


  • I had one interaction in the month of March that really left me feeling down and unprepared for rotations. Looking back now, it's clear to me that situations like that motivate me to try harder and do better than before. Easier said than done, but try not let the words of one person get in the way of your dreams and confidence to succeed! 


  • I have officially submitted my lottery list for rotation sites. I should find out on April 3 where I'll be for the next year on clinical rotations. I'm anxious to find out! 


  • Taking time to slow down is so important! Our society glorifies being busy, and truly, sometimes that's just not what we need. If at all possible, take some time each day to help yourself recenter, refocus, and refresh! 
  • M is incredible. I feel like I write that every month, but his support and encouragement continues to amaze me.
