Dean of Medicine/Chief of Staff/Chief Hospital administrator PPTH
My Story Is...
So you want to know about me huh? Well, I’m proud of my Jewish heritage, even if House thinks it is stupid to be.
I have wanted to be a doctor since I was 12. I guess the desire is genetic. My great grandfather published a key medical text that someone found a copy of for me.
I pushed myself all through school to achieve my dream. I was editor of my high school yearbook and spent pretty much all my time studying while my sister was the 'popular' one. I attended University of Michigan for pre-med and audited classes where I met the man that would alter my life forever.
I finished 2nd in my class at med school and was part of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. I still wish I'd have pushed myself harder to finish 1st. My specialty is Endocrinology.
When I was 29, I lied in order to get the Vice-President position at PPTH. I added two to my age. Yes, ladies…sometimes being younger isn’t better. And it worked. I later became the second youngest Dean of Medicine & first female and only one of three women in the US who hold such a position at a major hospital.
I was always a daddy's girl & miss him terribly. My relationship with my mother has always been strained at best, though has improved since we saved her life. I vowed to myself to never let my amazing little girl doubt how much I love her and how proud I am of everything she does.
I’ve been married once…for 6 days. Big mistake. And have another broken engagement under my belt. I spent so many years focused on my career & not finding a guy that could deal with it. So many men are threatened by successful intelligent women. I'm ready to finally settle down & share my life with someone special...which would be easier to do if I didn't have such a messy history with a certain diagnostician who decided to drive a car into my freaking house. I'm not sure what my future holds, but have taken an extended leave from PPTH to teach a class at NYU while the damage gets repaired. I'm loving being able to teach the next generations of life savers. They remind me so much of myself at that age and are a great distraction. But I do miss PPTH.
I do yoga 6 days a week to stay in shape. You'd be amazed how much you can get guys to do when you have a brain and a body.
My Secrets Are...
I will never be over him...I will always lobe him...and I miss what we had. Why did he have to screw it up.
People can change if they want something bad enough.
