To this day I still lean on my engineering background. I tell people all the time I learned how to critically think and problem solve by studying to be an engineer. I have been blessed to leverage this throughout my career as a spine surgeon. Remember to always dream big and aim for the stars even if you fall short, you're still in the heavens!
