Terresa Miller, 46, said she’s in her fourth year of medical school and will graduate in May of 2017 and her oldest of three children, Cody, 23, is in his first and will graduate in 2020. Both mother and son are attending Oklahoma State University Medical School.
Terresa has always loved medicine but put it on hold to raise her children. After they became self sufficient, she went forward with pursuing her dream of working in pediatrics.
Cody said that his mother was an inspiration for his career. “When I got out of school, I would stay in the science lab,” he said. “I was definitely in that environment … it always came easier to me. We went on a medical mission trip to Honduras (where we) provided any kind of medical help we could.”
