Hi, I’m Shayla. Â I’ve lived here in Indianapolis my whole life, but I have had the opportunity to live in other cities. Â I grew up on the east side, went to school on the north side, college at DePauw in Greencastle, and then medical school in the Caribbean in Antigua. Â In my last 2 years of medical school, I rotated in Pontiac, MI, Chicago, IL, and Brooklyn, NY. Â So I have had my fair share of small town and big city living, along with a little bit of island life mixed in. Â I’m currently working temporarily at a company on the north side while looking to go into clinical research or obtain a residency in psychiatry. Â Living in other places allowed me to appreciate Indianapolis more, while understanding what it could do better. Â My contribution to Urban Indy consists of analyzing our current transit infrastructure and the initiatives in place that will hopefully improve that infrastructure in the near future.
