Narrative

I remember my first day in the OMM lab feeling a bit lost an overwhelmed. I would look to the Fellows and be in total awe of their knowledge and confidence in OMM techniques. Later, I felt so grateful for their patience and encouragement as I gained my own footing. I hope to contribute to the new generations of students in a similar way, sharing my passion for OMM and supporting them through their growth. I am excited to further immerse myself in Osteopathic Medicine and learning to integrate it in my future practice.
