E27 - Nonlinear Career Journey
Show Notes

Becoming a lawyer or a doctor are two of the career paths that require the highest level of education, persistence, drive, and motivation. Imagine becoming both a lawyer AND a doctor… Aretha Delight Davis has done both with poise and grace in order to give back to her community.

It’s easy to get caught up in everyday life and become stuck in a career rut, focusing on your everyday job instead of thinking big picture about your goals and aspirations. For Aretha, the decision to transition from her law firm to medical school was not clear cut, but she knew it was her calling and she decided to pursue her passion.

In this episode of Empowered Women Series, we talk to Aretha about her nonlinear career journey and how it led to her co-founding a Boston-based nonprofit called ACP Decisions in order to help inform medical patients through videos. Her ties to the company are deeply personal, and she shares her inspiring and emotional story of creating the company with us. 

Aretha’s dedication to pursuing her dreams showcases not only her incredible intelligence and skillset, but also the importance of knowing herself. We can all learn from Aretha in order to become the best versions of ourselves!
