“ I knew I couldn’t keep doing this one thing because this is the way everyone else practiced medicine. ”- Riva
What happens when you spend your whole life thinking you want to be this one thing only to find out that yes you want it but not in the way it’s generally accepted.
That’s what happened with Riva. Growing up all she wanted to be a doctor like her parents. With experience as a gymnast, a passion for fitness and health, as well as years of watching her parents in their medical careers, Riva thought she was well on her way to becoming a doctor. Well she did become a doctor but realized quickly that the way traditional medicine is practice was not where she wanted to be.
