Dr. Ashley Denmark wrote and published her first book Olivia’s Doctor Adventures, illustrated by Mike Motz, to help introduce youth to medicine and hopefully inspire them to pursue a career in the field. Her own inspiration for the picture book is her 6-year-old daughter, Olivia. In fact, it was Olivia who suggested her mother write it in the first place.
In addition to being a mother (she has three children in total), wife, and student, Dr. Denmark is also the founder of the forthcoming initiative called, Project Diversify Medicine which already has a following of more than 7,000 people.
