Well Being

Five years ago I thought I was all done with vaginas. I had been working full-time as an OB/GYN, was expected to see 40 patients a day, and was really miserable. So I ended up leaving my job — a huge leap of faith because my husband was a stay-at-home dad and we didn’t have any savings. I thought I was going to be a full-time artist and writer, but realized nine months later that you can quit your job, but you can’t quit your calling. I realized that I was supposed to be in service to women in some way.
