After long months of studying for the boards, sacrificing weekends at the beach in Miami, FL, and then waiting three months to learn if I passed, one afternoon after work, I saw the envelope in the mail. Everything became still and believe it or not, in my excitement and worry I actually debated if I wanted to open it or not…but I did, and right there it said it: I PASSED! This moment was worth every bit of effort and to this date, I’ve been able to make decisions because “I know this; it was on the boards.”
