“I think being a mom makes me a much better physician, and being a physician makes me a much better mom. I value my time in each role so much more, knowing that the time is somewhat limiting.”

“You don’t grow if you stay in your comfort zone. You really have to push yourself and take risks if you want to do something great or challenge yourself.”

“It is important for my son to see that I, as a woman, have a passion and am motivated to go and do something.”

“Having your own identity makes you a better mom.”

“Being on reality TV, you get lost in the worry of, ‘what are people going to think?’ But at the end of the day, I can’t live like that. I just need to be true to who I am.”

“I am so blessed that I have been able to surround myself with such an amazing team. It helps to make this world, which can be very toxic at timebhs, feel much happier and more peaceful.”

“I think we often get stuck in our fears and don’t do things because we are scared. But you need just to do it.”
