"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not." -Dr. Seuss, The Lorax
To me, education is a gift that I can give to whomever and whenever.
Our healing hands are tools we carry around everywhere at all times.
Before I was in medical school, my sister went through a season of severe eczema of her entire upper neck, trunk and extremities when we were younger. She could not sleep soundly through many nights due to the burning and itching sensation along with the stiffening of her body from all the pain. She would ask me to touch her with the coolness of my hands and help relax all her tight muscles. I had great satisfaction from giving her some relief to her suffering even when she would wake me up in the middle of the night. I began to realize the value of directly contacting people with the sense of touch to help diagnose, treat and provide emotional support. I am so fortunate to be part of NMM/OMM fellowship and hope to develop my sense of touch and spread my passion for healing. I am excited to work with all the students and look forward to all the great experiences we will have together!
