L.J. SaundersAbout the Author
L. J. Saunders is a medical physician who has treated approximately one hundred thousand people throughout her career as an Emergency Medicine Physician, a Plastic Surgery Burn Fellow , a Maxillofacial Surgery Fellow in a trauma center and as a surgical resident.
Every encounter has been unique but each has presented with varying degrees of the same emotions among them fear of the unknown along with anticipation, anger and/or sadness when there is loss in any form, joy when the prognosis is positive and depression when it is not. There has been courageousness and love.
She has witnessed these emotions among all people from major urban trauma centers to small rural hospitals in the mountains of Northeast Georgia. She celebrates the incredible sameness among us all in our diversity.
Though humbled and feeling privileged by the longevity and richness of her career, she considers her most amazing, challenging accomplishment raising her two beautiful daughters!
