Ms. Zeller grew up in Kansas, a child in a family full of successful introverts where she was encouraged to participate in community activities and to always give back. It is something that she continues to practice.

“My dream is to operate a clinic that is at little to no cost to the patients,” she said. “I recognize that in order to pay off my loans and make a living, this may not be possible at first. Perhaps after a few years I could be in a place that I could work for profit most days of the week and provide an evening of free care to the underserved community. I know it’s a lofty goal, but I also feel I’ve had a great deal of experience with finding a way to make things happen.”
