2009 → 2019 Same smile, just whiter teeth & different hair? 😅
It feels odd for me to say a “decade” ago...In 2009, I was a sophomore on varsity & all I did was live and breathe basketball. The season had just begun and all I cared about was being with my team & making it to the playoffs. At the time I had already decided I wanted to be a “dental surgeon”, but I’m not even sure I really understood what that meant, what it entailed or how to even get there
It wasn’t until I started community college where I started coming into my own. I was able to dig deep in myself and really figure out who I was and what I wanted to be.
The dedication and grit I learned from playing basketball over the last 15 years helped me overcome every obstacle that kept me from reaching my goals. Fast forward 10 years & I am confident, poised & proud of the woman I’ve become. I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be and I have no doubt I will!

How many people wear compression socks to work out in??
Feeling leaner, stronger & noticing my clothes fitting differently already!
DAY 6 done = week ONE in the books 🎉👊🏼📚
Popped into my girl gang group, saw everyone slaying it, and it got me so excited + amped to get my own workout in too. Took two scoops of my preworkout......then realized today was actually an “active recovery” day w/ mostly stretching and a lot less cardio. #whoops
Still burned 292 + got me sweating. All in 20 min. 🙌🏼🦄 #unicornworkout
I don’t know what I’m doing half the time during these workouts (yet) but whatever it is, I’m liking it. 🤘🏼💥
Headed to the AAC tonight to fulfill my annual hockey game in my sisters honor, but to also celebrate my Dad's upcoming birthday and my good friend's birthday! Win or lose it's gonna be a great night! 💚🖤💚🖤💚
The only view of sunset I get is on First Aid.
Sane? Heck no.
I hope y’all are having a hustlin’ Saturday

Real talk: today was rough; it was a rough shift. I did 16 hours of work in 8; I wanted to cry, I wanted to give up and say fuck it; but I didn’t. My job is HARD. Being a CNA is hard. It’s back-breaking, exhausting, work. It’s physically and emotionally demanding. I did the work of 2 people today.. BUT. I kept my cool, I maintained my cheerful, playful attitude that my residents LOVE. Because THEY deserve it. It’s not their fault we are short staffed, I am there to make them comfortable, safe and happy. Somedays I don’t know how I’m going to live another day, that’s why it’s important to remember your WHY. Why do you do this job? And it’s important to have something that can relax you, and de-stress you. Because “you cannot pour from an empty cup”.

Time to see what the hype is all about! Secret: I’ve never once wore compression socks. Not when I worked 12’s in the ED. Not when training for half marathons. Not during long flights to Europe. Not ever. To be frank, I didn’t really see what the point was... I’m young, I’m healthy, really what difference could it make? But @comradsocks is convinced they can change my mind (not an easy feat I might add!) - - so here goes nothing. Day 1 of 4 I’m coming for ya.
Also, I tried a new @starbucks today and the barista complimented my scrubs and asked if she could touch them. @wearfigs

Long nights studying , saying no to fun, building relationships, networking... that moment you get pinned it makes it all worth it. .
We all took part in the nightingale tribute of lighting the lamp and reciting the nurse pledge. “ In full knowledge of the obligation I am undertaking, I promise to care for the sick with all the skills and understanding I possess without regard for race, creed, color, politics or social status sparing no effort to conserve life, to alleviate suffering and to promote health.I will respect at all times the dignity and religious belief of the patients under my care, holding in confidence all personal information entrusted to me and refraining from any action, which might endanger life or health.I will endeavor to keep my professional knowledge and skills at the highest level and to give loyal support and cooperation to all members of the health team.I will do my utmost to honor the international code of ethics applied to nursing and to uphold the integrity of the registered professional nurse.”

•Enjoy your weekends, manage your time and perfect your study flow 📝•
Use this weekend to get a jump start into next weeks exams and materials and put yourself in a position to succeed in #nursingschool.
Getting through nursing school seems like a monumental task especially when your lack of sleep, motivation and energy continue to drain out of you as the semester goes on.
The demands placed on you to study for exams, write papers and then spend up to 12 hrs in clinicals can leave you feeling overwhelmed so managing your time is an extremely important skill to learn early on.
Using your weekend mornings to study will free up your time to spend socially with friends and outings. Plus it always feel good to know you’ve got some of next weeks work done completed. That relief of anxiety can go along way and learning to manage your time will also serve you well in your nursing career!

One of the terms of terror is over! Feels so good to say that pharmacology and med surg I is over, this was by far the most difficult term I’ve had in all of my schooling. Pharmacology is a lot on its own but completing it in an 9 week term is on another level difficult. This term I lost some friends because I had to prioritize my school above hanging out with friends. I think when you’re in a difficult or accelerated program you really learn who is going to support you through it and want you to succeed. I’m thankful for my friends who are supporting and understand I can’t put anything above my school right now. I’ve got two much needed days off before starting the new term. Grateful to see my friends and catch up on some sleep! What do you do on your time off school?
Lets take a look inside of the knee joint! 🦵🏻 As an ortho PA, knee arthroscopy is a common procedure that we assist our surgeons with. Prior to the physician coming into the room you should have the patient correctly positioned, draped and make sure all of the equipment is set up and working. Upon completion of the surgery, the PA will reapproximate the incisions, apply sterile dressings, and transfer the patient to the postop holding area. It is a relatively quick procedure and sometimes we do several of these in one morning.
Knee arthroscopy is a surgical technique to visualize the articular cartilage, meniscus, ligaments, synovium, and bone with a small camera. It is a minimally invasive procedure with small incisions and can be scheduled at an outpatient surgery center. It is indicated to diagnose and treat meniscal tear damage, patella pathology, removal of loose bodies, reconstruct a torn anterior cruciate ligament, and to I&D knee sepsis.
You should systematically check the following locations and structures during a diagnostic scope:
1️⃣ Suprapatellar pouch - loose bodies
2️⃣ Patellofemoral joint - cartilage
3️⃣ Trochlear groove
4️⃣ Lateral gutter - insertion of poplitius
5️⃣ Lateral compartment - anterior horn of lateral meniscus
6️⃣ Medial gutter
7️⃣ Medial compartment - medial meniscus, femoral condyle cartilage and tibial plateau cartilage
8️⃣ ACL, PCL
9️⃣ Finish lateral compartment - lateral meniscus, femoral condyle cartilage and tibial plateau cartilage
Hey guys! Hope y’all had a great week :) This was my first week of nursing school! I started with fundamentals lecture on Tuesday and Skills lab on Thursday! I’m currently studying because they sure didn’t waste anytime beginning the content that will be on our first exam! Any tips for fundamentals? I’d love to hear them :) xo. Cheers to the first semester!! 📚💉☺️

Today was our first day of clinicals at USC aka my dream school. I got to assist in a composite filling with a dental student and I hope they were happy with my help because I really enjoyed helping them out. Our program requires us to go to every specialty at least twice to assist and/or observe so assisting in my composite is my first check off. This is such an exciting experience and opportunity for me and my classmates because not all DA programs get to do this. I'm so excited to be assisting here with the dental students and to learn about new things every week! FIGHT ON! ✌🏻

And just like that my 4 week vacation is over. Tomorrow is back to early AM wakeup calls and learning even more about the field I have fell in love with. There are a lot of exciting things happening in 2019 for me and I'm so excited about all of it. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and a great start to the new year! 🥳

IT'S OFFICIAL! I'm finally done with my first semester of dental assisting school and I finished with straight A's! I can't believe that my late nights and early mornings of studying paid off. This program has taught me the true meaning of hard work. I have never worked so hard for school in my life and it was definitely hard for me in the beginning to get into the groove of actually studying. But now I feel like a pro at studying and since I've been on break, I feel like I need to study for something but I don't! Does anyone else feel like they have something to study? 😅
Because.. why not 😝 #10yearchallenge
Left: Graduation Day at UVA. Missing brows and clearly didn’t own SPF. She was quiet, lacked confidence, didn’t know what she wanted, and was afraid of failure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Right: Practicing optometrist in NYC. Still has colored hair, better brows. But she’s more confident, knows what she wants & works for it, no longer afraid of the unknown. She’s fulfilled with her career path, her travels, her future ambitions.
If I could tell the girl on the left one thing, it would be to trust in the process. Don’t be so hard on yourself or have your whole life figured out love. Amazing things can happen out of order, enjoy the journey one step at a time❤️.

I’m taking a 7 day long trip and didn’t need any PTO! #Nurselife definitely has its perks. 🙌🏼 How do I manage to do this? It’s simple➡️I work 3 in a row at the start of the week (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) and then work the last 3 days of the next week (Thursday, Friday, Saturday). I’ve been doing this pretty frequently and love that I can save PTO hours for the summertime but still enjoy mini vacations in between shifts. ✈️ The flexibility of nursing and working 3 days a week will never get old. 😍
Finally got around to reading Becoming Nursey! My unit educator gave all of the nurse residents a copy during orientation. Such a funny, relatable, and interesting read 📚 I finished it in one day 🙃 Highly recommend for new nurses and nursing students 💕
What I’ve realized about success is that it repels people from you as much as it pulls them towards you. This has very little to do with you and a lot to do with them. No matter what you’re choosing to pursue within your individual life- do it for yourself. Don’t compare yourself to anyone but yourself. Beat your own goals, hold yourself accountable and challenge yourself. We’ll all be better people for it, myself included.
