Minimum wage to doctor’s salary: what I’ve learned about the value of money

Working wasn’t just about adding to my resume for college and medical school. It was giving myself some pocket money and a bit of freedom to do things and buy things without my parents’ permission.

What jobs did I have?

In high school, I worked as a filing assistant in a doctor’s office, at Hardee’s as a cashier; in college, I was a librarian and then a tutor.
