PROFESSIONAL TRANSITIONS: Journey From Motherhood to Academic Anesthesiology and Back Again

This is a story not of a life’s transition, but rather a daily transition. After I awake, there are the day’s chores of motherhood to be completed. It’s not long into the morning, however, when I assume my professional responsibilities. These circumstances are not unique to our family. What places us on the far side of the curve is the degree to which we have taken on these challenges. We have six children, two boys and four girls. They range in age from 7 months to newly achieved “double digits.” I am a very busy mother, complete with school projects and seasonal clothing changes, but I am also a full-time anesthesiologist and intensive care physician in a large academic hospital. What about my husband, you ask? He’s a cardiothoracic surgical fellow.
