When I was 15 years old I knew that I had to make a decision on my future if really wanted to land a great career. I knew that I was quite smart and my grades were always good, but I really had no idea what I wanted to be, and I was on the lookout for inspiration. Thankfully this inspiration came my way when I had a gynecology appointment here in Waukesha, Wisconsin, with the incredible Dr Victoria J Mondloch. This woman inspired me incredibly and helped me to make my mind up that I wanted to be a doctor, and here is why.
I was very scared ahead do fly gynecology appointment, as any young girl would be, but thankfully Dr Victoria Mondloch had such a way about her, that she instantly calmed my nerves. During our first meeting, the doctor examined me and happily answered my questions about a huge array of topics relating to medicine. I spoke with the doctor about not knowing what to do as a career, and it was then that she asked me if I had considered being a doctor.
The truth be told I had actually never considered being a doctor, but witnessing this strong, smart, independent woman in front of me, I was instantly inspired. Dr Victoria J Mondloch proceeded to tell me that she specialized in family medicine and gynecology, recounting some amazing stories to me about the cases that she had dealt with. The doctor also told me how she had recently gained a place on the hospital board where she can influence decisions from the top, and that she regularly contributes to a medical journal which is nationwide, I was blown away.
Once we were finished with the appointment, I thanked the doctor and told her that I would look into what I would need to do in order to become a doctor. Being the amazing woman that she is, Victoria Mondloch then asked for me email address and told me that she would send some stuff if I was interested, I passed my address on but never really thought much would come of it.
Fast forward 2 months later and an email arrives to my inbox from the hospital at Waukesha, it was from Dr Victoria J Mondloch with an introduction to studying medicine, incredible.
All of this happened 6 years ago and I am currently studying medicine at my local university, still in contact with the doctor and on my way to becoming a specialist in obstetrics just like her. The inspiration which Dr Victoria gave me was simply incredible and her life and achievements have helped me immensely in making me the woman and the medical student that I am today. Hopefully this story in turn, will be able to inspire you to becoming a doctor like Dr Mondloch too.
