I am a Medical Specialist, Wife and Proud Mother with a special Interest in Health and Wellness.
My story begins in a small town in Africa, Mombasa which was made famous by the beach scene in the movie ‘Out of Africa’ It was an idyllic life.
A memory that stands out vividly and that inspired my journey into Medicine was on a day when the family was huddled around my grandma. The Doctor had arrived with a big black box. He proceeded to attach the wires and I watched mesmerized. Oh what power he possessed I thought. He will made her better. I knew then what I wanted to become. My grandma passed away soon after and it was years later that I realized the box was nothing other than an electrocardiogram and had in fact diagnosed a ‘heart attack’
My journey to accomplish this was possible due to the support and sacrifice by my family. To them I owe so much!
Well now onto the rest of the journey……
