Resilience means pushing through when you doubt yourself and feel overwhelmed by the competition. But failure can be a good thing!

This is my first episode in a soon-to-be series of non-designer interviews.

Sometimes we find parallels to other industries that help us gain perspective in our own. That’s exactly why I am interviewing my good friend Stephanie Davenport, Paediatric Emergency Medicine Physician at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) in Ottawa. She is a true inspiration!
