Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born and raised in Albania. My family moved to Boston in 2013 and we to open our own medical practice.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

As a parent and as a daughter, we saw the hurdles most families currently face when providing healthcare for our loved ones. We wanted to bring back the concept of the ``old family doctor`` with the convenience of modern medicine and technology. We want our patients to be informed, involved, and feel advocated for in a fragmented healthcare system. Our desire to help our patients stemmed into the aesthetics world. We want our patients to feel confident and healthy from the inside-out. Our main goal, with both parts of the practice, is to create an environment of community and openness with patients we deeply care about.

What would your clients say about you and your company?

I think our clients would say that we are a family-oriented business that prides ourselves on being welcoming, caring, and would go the extra mile (literally and figuratively) for all our patients.

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

My grandma told me ``men come and go, you get the diploma!``

What is your favorite book?

Love in the Times of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez

What is your secret weapon? An app, a tool, a organization method, anything?! (Can be a personal or professional life tool)

My strength and not questioning ``why`` things are happening, just formulating solutions!

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Have more faith and trust in yourself. Don't put politeness over assertiveness when speaking about what you believe in! Coming from a culture where speaking up for yourself is borderline disrespectful and in a patriarchal society, it's important to stand up for your convictions.

How do you enjoy your free time?

When I have the opportunity, I like to be in nature and I love dancing.

What is something that not many people know about you?

Before we opened our practice, I was an Economics Professor - I love teaching and I love research!
