Marie Duan Meservy is a graduate of University of Nevada School of Medicine, now a resident in Radiology at Dartmouth, who writes about her diverse life adventures. Her story began in China where she was the child of two young doctors, living without refrigerators or hot water. She has since lived in Montreal and many parts of the U.S., and continues to broaden her perspective by traveling. She decided to pursue a medical career when, as an undergraduate, one of her research projects required her to perform open heart surgeries on mice. During her clinical years, her blog about medical school gained a worldwide audience and she received a generous grant from the Artist in Residence program (a collaboration of the University of Nevada, Sierra Arts Foundation, and Renown Health Foundation) which allowed her to publish her book, Tales of an Ugly Docling. Her other passions include historical fencing, music, physics, baking, languages, and teaching children.
