Ashley Adamo graduated from Hunter College with a degree in literature (favorite author: John Irving), before returning for a postbac in bio-chemistry. She found an unlikely link between her two passions: “All medicine is language,” she said. “Reading a medical textbook is like reading James Joyce’s Ulysses. You read it and then later you understand it.” Part of her desire to attend medical school came from her reflecting on her mother’s death when Adamo was a teenager. “My mother died of cancer and doctors were both the heroes and the villains,” Adamo recalled. “I was angry for a while and then I realized that they were the main players and I was on the side and I never wanted to be on the side again.” Plus, she added with a laugh, being a doctor is good in case of a zombie apocalypse. Between finishing her postbac she worked at a lab studying the effect of various cancers on fruit flies.

After graduating from the College of the Holy Cross, she pursued a Master’s in Public Health at Boston University focusing on epidemiology. “I wanted a broader knowledge of healthcare,” she said. After finishing her Master’s, she decided to apply to medical school. “I realized I couldn’t have a desk job,” said Hisoler. “I wanted to see patients.”

Why Medicine "I never had any interest in medicine growing up or even in my undergraduate career. After my undergraduate degree, I moved to New York City to pursue a career as a dancer and an actor. After a few years, I got really sick. I was undiagnosed for about six months with an auto-immune disease. Having this experience of being sick without insurance made me think about studying medicine. I felt like there was this whole world of people who are suffering and getting lost in the system. I felt that because of my experiences, I could really offer them something."

Why Medicine "When I was in second grade, I was diagnosed with a rare fatal heart arrhythmia. It ended up being a misdiagnosis, but I visited a cardiac pediatrician in Chicago, Dr. Barbara Deal. Until then, I was terrified of doctors, but Dr. Deal was really calm and she sat down and explained what was going on—she even took the time to draw a human heart for me. She was the first doctor that I looked up to and wanted to emulate. I wanted to help kids in similar situations."
