Shivani is a resident physician at Duke who is passionate about improving wellness and quality of life amongst resident physicians. She is acutely aware of the difficulties that ambitious individuals face in balancing their career and personal lives, especially with the rigorous demands of the medical field. After living in multiple cities across the Eastern seaboard for college and medical school, Shivani experienced the discomfort associated with being uprooted from familiar surroundings. ForeverX, which was started as a passion project, morphed into something much more when Shivani and her brother realized there was an inherent void in the mobile and online dating landscape for healthcare professionals.
