My name is Thea, and I am a product designer turned medical doctor. I became tired of listening to myself talk, so I started this blog. Beyond a physician, I am also a wife, daughter, and sister. Sometimes I write about serious things, but most of the time, I don’t.
I’m a day-dreamer, wanderluster, running addict who is an introvert at heart. My bucket-list that is a million pages long, my zodiac sign is a pisces, and I was born in the year of the goat. If you think I write a lot of dot dot dots (“…”), that’s because I’m still thinking.
A Short Biography…
Thea L. Swenson, nee Theodora Lananh Tran, was born in Los Angeles, California and raised in Denver, Colorado. She received a Bachelor’s of Science in Engineering: Product Design from Stanford University and received a Medical Degree from the University of Colorado. She is currently a resident physician at Vanderbilt University with interests in sports medicine.
Prior to medical school, she spent several years working in product design for health tech companies. Frustrated by the way our healthcare system functions (or doesn’t function), she went to medical hoping she could use her product design background to build a better healthcare system.
Pisces: generally more laid back and agreeable than their other water counterparts. All water signs, though, are known for having strong feelings and occasionally being “wishy-washy.”
Born in the year of the Sheep/Goat: loving and selfless, always thinking for others, even if it works against their own interest
