If you are a doc wife and have a blog that’s not listed below, it’s because I don’t know about you yet! Would be happy to add you, please contact me. All blogs listed in alphabetical order.
Name: Courtney Byers
Type of blog: Affordable fashion, travel & lifestyle
Date Started: 2017
Story: I started my blog, “Life Of A Med School Wife,” 2017 as a hobby to fulfill my need to have a creative outlet when my husband was in his 3rd year of medical school. Exactly 1 year later I re-branded to, “A Byers Guide. I blog about affordable fashion, lifestyle, and travel.
Type of blog: Personal Finance
Tagline: A personal finance blog for veterinarians
Date Started: April 2018
Story: I saw that there was such a wealth of information for physicians that wanted to learn more about personal finance. However, I couldn’t find anything equivalent for my profession (veterinary medicine). With the profession facing its own unique financial challenges, as well as its changing demographic to majority female, I felt compelled to start my own blog! As an aside, a lot of my posts are useful to pretty much anyone that wants to learn more about personal finance.

Date Started: Summer 2017
Story: I believe in this age of filters and social media perfection that authentic resources need to have their place. That’s what I am trying to create! A place for women to feel supported and know motherhood is a stressful, messy, beautiful journey that looks different for all of us. But we are all more alike than we are different!
Type of blog: food (recipes), focused on using local ingredients
Tagline: Tales from a Tulsa Table

I post recipes on the blog, but post about eating while traveling and restaurants on my other social accounts, so they’re all worth a follow! I also have a Facebook group where people can join in community and ask cooking or gardening questions!
