I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my path, specifically, how I got here. All the pieces on the chess board had to move just so in order for me to arrive to exactly where I am today. The Universe has a funny and ironically dark way of pushing us in a direction; priming us for a duty, action, or journey that will require certain skills. Before Mike was diagnosed, I was doing part time radio hosting work outside of my “then” full time job as an associate publisher. Before that, I published a novel, worked in trauma as a social worker (many of you may not know I have a Master’s degree in SW), and was accepted and attended Yale University to become certified in Storytelling in Modern Media. All of these steps primed me for the path I am now on since Mike’s death (a death for which I would give all of these skills back if it meant he were here with me).

Our guest today, Dr. Anne-Marie Carbonell, co-founder at OncoSynergy Inc, has had to take a very similar journey.

In this episode, we explore her journey into neurosurgery and the “actions” the Universe put in her path to lead her away from saving people’s lives in surgery to saving people’s lives by finding better treatments. Think of the premise for “Doctor Strange” (the Marvels Universe movie and comics).
