We invite you to learn more about Dr. 在沙巴体育网站庆祝2021年妇女历史月之际，海塞尔曼和她成为家庭医生的旅程.
Q: What influenced you most in your decision to become a physician?
答:虽然我在这里的旅程有时充满挑战，但作为一个有双胞胎儿子的职业母亲，我仍在努力平衡工作与生活, I wouldn’t change a thing. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a doctor. While there is not one particular thing that led me to this decision, 我只知道，在我很小的时候，我的家人就问我长大后想做什么, the answer was always a doctor. As I made my way through college, I contemplated other careers in science. I spent two summers working with an oncologist in St. Louis mostly involved in research. However, he would let me tag along with him to his clinic once a week. 我记得我对他和病人之间的关系以及他们对他的信任感到敬畏. 这是最终驱使我选择医学事业的原因，医患关系. I still value this most in my practice today as well. "
Q: What have some of your greatest rewards been as a primary care physician?
A: "I love having the ability to form relationships with patients and their extended family, of providing care for them, helping them to lead healthier lives, and hopefully explaining things in a manner that is understandable and relatable to them. 我总是告诉我的病人，我真的很想念他们，甚至在办公室之外也记得他们, 想知道他们是如何处理沙巴体育网站讨论过的各种问题或者他们面临的各种挑战的. It is truly an honor that they have placed their trust and health in me."
Q: What are your future goals as a physician?
A: "I am blessed to be a part of Berkeley Family Practice. From the moment that I interviewed with this practice, I could tell that the other providers here were truly in medicine for the right reasons, having an honest desire to help others, and that they also place a high value on the patient-physician relationship. 我希望我能够继续获得病人的信任，并作为他们的医生建立持久的关系，这样我就可以成为他们“家庭”的一员，直到未来."
答:在成为一名医生的艰难过程中，我非常幸运地得到了家人坚定不移的支持. I specifically remember a teacher in high school (not a very good one :), 告诉我，我永远不会成为一名医生，作为一名女性，我将“撞上玻璃天花板”。. While I had unending support from many other teachers throughout my life, this one challenge always stuck with me. 在我的家庭和许多老师的不懈努力和支持下, I was able to succeed in completing my goal. 我想告诉所有年轻女性，成功的关键在于相信自己和自己的梦想, placing trust in your family and friends who believe in you, and a lot of hard work."
