Welcome! Thank you for visiting Mortar & Pastel!
My name is Kathy, and I am a pharmacist. I was born and raised in Falls Church, Virginia, a suburb of Washington DC. I went to Virginia Tech for undergrad and got my bachelor’s in Biology and Chemistry. I got my doctorate from the Medical College of Virginia and am now practicing in Northern Virginia.
Even while I was buried neck-deep in books throughout undergrad and grad school, I was interested in everything about fashion, cooking, and social media, which I considered welcome distractions from the constant studying. I consider my style “preppy professional” and may have a slight obsession with everything Kate Middleton has ever worn.
This blog is about my daily musings as a not-your-average-adult. While sometimes I wish I had a 9-5 job (rather than the 7am-9pm I do now), I want to show that us doctors can have fun too! Won’t you come join me?
