About me

Welcome to Aspiring Doc Advice, thanks so much for coming by to see my page! Now that you’re here, here is a little bit about me!!

My name is Jade and I grew up in Greenville, South Carolina where I lived until I graduated high school. When I was accepted to the College of Charleston I moved to Charleston to later receive my bachelors in Psychology. Interestingly, I started as an accounting major and I enjoyed it at first. It wasn’t until later that I realized that I spent two whole years of my life studying something that I was not at all passionate about. My spring semester of my sophomore year I was lost, I had always loved to volunteer and flirted with medicine, but never really thought it was a possibility.

So I started doing some research and learned about a program that let you observe in a clinical setting and get lots of patient interaction. From day one of starting the program, I fell in love with medicine. This was when I decided to change my major to Psychology and go pre-med. During college and my gap year I did a lot of volunteer work and neuroscience research, so you’ll find a lot of that here.

On this page, you’ll see everything from college/post-college, medicine, lifestyle, and just some of my thoughts overall. I love to write and share my life experiences so there’s a variety of it all! 

When I am not stressing about getting into my dream school…I really enjoy reading, writing, binging netflix, and being out in nature whenever possible!!

I have a coffee addiction as well as a collection of over 100 books, whoops! 

I’m now living in Philadelphia, PA receiving a masters degree and applying to medical school this year. Upcoming, you’ll see a lot of MCAT and studying posts, as well as clinical work overall. 

I started reading blogs years ago when I first decided I wanted to pursue medicine and fell in love because it created a space with real people sharing their stories and struggles. So here I am now! I started this blog in college and wrote a lot about school and lifestyle, but now I’m in graduate school pursuing medicine and I hope my readers can follow my story through my medical path and hope it inspires you to follow your dreams, whatever they are!! So that’s my story! If you’re reading, send me an email, I would love to read about you too!
