019. How Being Underestimated Helped This Female Dentist Succeed
I talk with Dr. Kimi Caswell about her early dental career years. She said "I met with several dentists and orthodontists and they were gracious enough to take me to lunch, but they were defining my role for me.

I talk with Dr. Stephanie Woelfel DPT about the taking the time to get to know yourself, so you can really find true balance. She had THE plan in her head.

Both of us have similar paths in that we kind of thought our careers and life was going to go a certain way and then it didn't, but in the most beautifully "wrong" way that we thought it was supposed to go.
