Leadership in Medicine

As medical director of a surgery center with four operating rooms, I am responsible for all operational issues that impact patient care, from the medical care itself to keeping the surgeons running on time. I am also in charge of the anesthesia team, UT Medicine Anesthesiology that cares for all patients undergoing surgery.

What can you tell us about your Girl Scout experience?

I remember how much I loved my uniform. I stood up a little straighter when I wore it. As a lover of fashion, I felt confident and empowered in my Girl Scout uniform. My badge sash proudly displayed all of my hard work.

Do you remember your Girl Scout Troop Number?

I do not remember my Girl Scout troop number. As a busy working mother, I barely remember what I cooked for dinner last night.

How did being a Girl Scout prepare you to be the leader you are today?

Girl Scouts reinforced my parents’ message to me. They told me, “You can be anything you want to be. All it takes is hard work.” The Girl Scouts fed my curiosity for learning in a creative and supportive environment. 

Are there any lessons you learned in Girl Scouts that you still live by?

Girl Scouts taught me to learn and grow all of my life. Learn as much as you can about as many things you can. Think of the wide array of badges that the Girl Scouts have. Be courageous enough to try new things. Life is a wonderful adventure.

Do you have a special story/memory of being a Girl Scout?

The awe that I felt when I saw a girl with badges that wrapped down the front of her sash and around to the back. The sash represented success achieved with a lot of hard work and persistence.

With the 100th Girl Scout Anniversary upon us, what would you tell a young girl today about the value of being a Girl Scout.

The value of Girl Scouts is to help encourage the girls to live up to their fullest potential. Reach!

What’s your favorite Girl Scout cookie?
My favorite cookie? Samoas. No question. The caramel and toasted coconut are fabulous.
