Ever since I was in grade school, I knew I wanted to be a doctor. I discovered radiology in middle school, and you could say it was my first love.
When I started a family, a new love came into my life, but that did not diminish my passion for radiology. I wanted a well-rounded life: a fulfilling radiology career and significant time with my family. I honestly thought a traditional radiology career could provide a healthy work-life balance, but during residency, fellowship, and a few years of private practice, I had not managed to achieve it.
And so I started to look elsewhere.
