By Inga Hansen Photography by Robert Seale At an early age, Emily Kirby, MD, discovered the career road she wanted to travel—and that has made all the difference. Plastic surgeon Emily Kirby, MD, was 5 years old when she fi rst told her mother she was going to be a doctor. "She says she kept waiting for me to change my mind, but I never did," recalls Dr. Kirby. When a friend's father—who was a plastic surgeon—visited her second-grade class to talk about his job, she promptly chose her specialty. "At that point, I wanted to be an artist, a doctor or a race car driver, but when he showed us pictures of cleft lips and palates, I was fl oored," she says. "I went home and told my parents that I could be an artist and a doctor, and that my mind was made up. I was going to be a plastic surgeon." A CLEAR VISION | JULY/AUGUST 2019 51
