This blog was inspired by my experiences as a mom now to 3 girls (ages 3, 5 and 7 yrs) and as an Emergency Medicine physician ("ER doctor ") for the past 14 years. I have been winging it as a mom since 2014, and have learned a lot along the way:) I often times get asked advice from parents: expecting, new, and seasoned. I want to share personal stories, safety tips for parents/caregivers, and some frequently asked questions from friends, neighbors, family and co-workers.
A little background: I grew up in Kansas City, am currently living in the Chicago burbs, and soon will (finally!!!) make my way out West (mountains). I love spending time outdoors and being active. I work part-time as an Emergency Medicine physician and Associate Professor at the medical school (academic medicine), but spend most of my days being mom. It's the best work-life balance! I enjoy teaching students, residents and the community.
As a visitor here, you are helping me transform my ideas into reality. I genuinely enjoy "talking shop" as a mom and doctor. I encourage your feedback! As a disclaimer, this is purely a hobby. My views are my own and not of my employer. You are welcome to ask questions but I cannot legally provide medical advice. I love suggestions -- what do you want to learn more about?
