Why Medicine: Ever since she was little, Shelby has wanted to take care of people when they were sick. When family and friends were sick, she would be the one going to get them a cool washrag or drawing them a picture to make them feel a little better. But she knew she really wanted to go into medicine when she was in an accident in the third grade that resulted in a concussion and laceration on her head. She was taken to Dr. Debra Selby, her pediatrician, who sutured her laceration and was able to calm her down and make everything ok. She knew after that that someday she wanted to be the one bringing that kind of comfort to other people when they weren’t feeling well.
