    15/11/2016 Duración: 33min

Now, just in case you don’t know who she is, Nyali is my best friend since 7th grade, and she also happens to be a rockin’ mom, wife, and vascular surgeon! You may have heard me talk about Nyali before – about the pact that we made back in the day. She would grow up to become a doctor and I would become a lawyer. (I’m pretty sure that I was heavily influenced by Claire Huxtable, the mom from The Cosby Show, who happened to be beautiful, educated, and the “perfect” mom and wife in my eyes.) Life took us on different paths, but Nyali stayed on course. She went straight to college then to medical school and spent the majority of her young adult years in school working toward her dream of becoming a doctor. In this fun episode, I help Nyali pull the curtains back. I wanted to know HOW she stayed on the same path she outlined for herself since she was a little girl. So many people

I’ve always wanted to complete the highest level of education so I wouldn’t have any limitations or be forced to settle for not having the right qualifications. In middle school my best friend, Nyali, and I made a pact with each other – she would become a medical doctor, and I would become an attorney. My life took me down a few detours along a non-traditional path of education. As I learned more about law, I decided that it wasn’t for me. As an undergraduate student I took my first psychology class and instantly fell in love with the
