Girl Gets Job (and Blog)!

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Emily and after 4 years of college and 4 years of medical school I will be graduating in a few weeks and getting my first job as a resident physician.  Here I will share my experiences transitioning to the working world and trying to get my personal finances in order.  I am also excited to share some goals with you as a way of keeping myself accountable for all of the things that I hope to accomplish.
