After graduating from residency in 2002, Dr. Haver stayed in Houston and joined a busy private practice. Covering more than one hospital and driving all over Houston, she was exhausted. After three years, she left her position and went back to work at the hospital where she had trained. She explains that academics was a better fit and that her work life was saner.
When the family moved back home to the United States, she felt ready to go back to working as an OBGYN in the academic world. While she loves her practice, she explains that, between electronic medical records, call, and other hassles, sometimes it feels like, “the magic is gone.”
It wasn’t long before Dr. Haver discovered another opportunity. Her best friend had been selling Stella and Dot, and doing very well. But, Dr. Haver says, “I didn’t know she was doing as well as she was because it isn’t polite to talk about money.” Dr. Haver liked the jewelry, and when she learned that the company was launching a skin care line called EVER, she was interested in becoming part of it.
Dr. Haver still enjoys her work as an OBGYN, however, and explains that she tells her residents, some of whom are hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, that they also need to think about finding a side gig besides medicine in order to stay afloat financially.
