Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

The past few years we have seen an increase in gun violence. Gun violence is terrifying and never easy to understand. We see a lot of individuals become stressed and terrified of what’s to come of our future because of such violence. This is never an easy topic to discuss so I am fortunate to have Dr. Nicole Christian-Brathwaite to be a guest for today’s episode.
