"I was the kid in elementary school that when they asked what you want to be when you grow up, I drew a picture of myself with a stethoscope and a white coat and I said I want to be a doctor. I've always known I wanted to be a physician or an MD since I was young.
I started med school and then we were learning about the heart and the diseases that go along with that, and cardiology just piqued my interest and I just found it fascinating from the basic cell level biology to learning about diseases and how it affects the body."

"You're never too young to have a heart attack. We see, uncommonly, you can have heart attacks in kids but really it’s mainly the middle aged population where we see it the most. However, that doesn’t mean to say that we're not at risk for heart disease.
If you're having symptoms, chest pain, nausea, shortness of breath or just something just does not feel right and you have a concern about your heart then that's perfectly reasonable to go get that checked out with your physician."
