Career Story: 

When I finished residency, Iwent to work for IHS as a locums in Ketchikan, Alaska. I had agreat time and was drawn to the beauty of Alaska. I also met my husband and committed to IHS in Metlakatla (near Ketchikan) for 2 years. Subsequently after the birth of our first child we moved to Juneau where I practiced full spectrum family medicineat an IHS clinic for 6 years. After the birth of our second child,the family priorities changed, and Ijoined my husband's private group practice which allowed me to have a more flexibility in my schedule. We are a group of 7 internists and family physicians plus 2 midlevels,practicing both outpatient and inpatient medicine.We all work 4 days a week, with call 1 in 7.Our Senior partners emphasize the importance of family and lifestyle,and the rest will follow. Sofar, it'sbeen a great career!
