Kelley Saunders will officially become a physician after graduating from the University of Arizona College of Medicine on Monday.
She’s spent the last four years studying for her degree while her husband of five years has juggled two jobs, while also taking care of the house and two young boys — ages three and five.
“He’s a rock star,” Saunders said. “He also takes care of me and supports me when I’ve had a rough day.”
She knows her family has made incredible sacrifices for her, but plans to spend plenty of time with them before beginning training at Banner Good Samaritan this summer to be a physician in obstetrics-gynecology this summer.
Saunders was also selected for the Gold Humanism Honor Society, and portrayed her struggles over the past four years in a music video. Her entry, “Your Love,” is one of four vignettes part of a national contest.
The contest will hand out first prize to the video with the most likes. It runs through this month with the $1,000 reward going to the winning school’s library.
