5. Student-athlete life, wedding planning, and everything in-between, with Alex Martinez, BSN, RN

Episode 5 is with Alexandra Martinez, a registered nurse in inpatient pediatrics. You can listen online here, or on your favorite podcast-streaming service.

After a heavier conversation last month, I thought a fun, lighter conversation was in order. This episode is especially for the students out there and the 20-somethings trying to figure out life.

Alex and I chat about:

  • How to navigate a busy schedule as a student, and how those long days and trying to balance everything is worth it in your future career
  • Advice on finding the field in medicine that is right for you, and ways to boost your resume to land in the career you want
  • Wedding planning, being newlyweds, and Alex shares the joy it was to walk alongside her husband in his first communion, reconciliation, and confirmation before they were married.

We reference:

  • The Magnolia Story, by Chip and Joanna Gaines

Also, I have some very exciting news to share! A book I contributed to was released last month. It’s called By His Mercy, by Tricia Walz, and can be purchased for only $15 (with all proceeds to charity!) here. It’s a compilation of 11 young adult’s stories of God working miracles in their lives, and of His great mercy. My story includes kidney failure, a plane crash, and a flood, all in the span of about a year- God sure knew I needed a lot of opportunities for his mercy to shine brightly through.
