What is your favorite Endocrine Society memory? How has Endocrine Society supported your professional journey?
The thought of nearly 10,000 endocrinologists and clinicians in related fields coming congregating together for an annual meeting to share and learn from others is truly exciting.

Why did you become an endocrinologist? Did a particular experience lead you here?
I was inspired by and drawn to endocrinology through what turned out to be a fortuitous endocrinology rotation during my medicine residency. Dr. Lewis Braverman happened to be the attending on service those 2 weeks and meeting him turned into a lifelong and very enjoyable career.

What would you most like to tell yourself at 18?
It's definitely ok to make some mistakes along the way!
