Ciara Kelly - Doctor to broadcaster

Season 1, Episode 5,  Oct 23, 2021, 05:00 AM

Ciara Kelly presents prime-time radio on Ireland's national news and current affairs station, Newstalk. She trained as a medical doctor in the 90s and ran a GP surgery in Co. Wicklow until she pivoted careers and swapped her stethoscope for headphones in 2017. Ciara reveals what it was like to work 80 hours a week while she wore both hats. In her own words, she's a 'carpe diem kind of person' and knew that even if things didn't work out, she wouldn't regret taking the leap of faith. But for the more risk averse among us, she has sage advice for anyone who dreams of doing something different.
