New girl from Houston

Hello all! I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I’m a 31 year old furniture designer currently exploring the possibility of pursuing a career in medicine. I’m planning to start taking prereqs in the spring at UH, but for now, I’m getting certified as an EMT and reading lots of books planning for a medical career. I’ll be using the EMT cert to get some hands-on experience while I’m doing “career research.” Anyone else in the Houston area? I would love to get together for coffee with some local nontrads to talk about our experiences. Send me a message if you’re interested.

Wishing you the best there in Houston - stay low! This storm is pehnomenal!

Hi Amandaz,

I am a 29 year old female non trad. living in North Houston. I’m completing some of my premeds in the Lonestar cc system and am planning on doing some at UHD (unsure at this point). We should definitely exchange ideas.
