Prior to attending KSUCPM, Sal was a full-time firefighter/paramedic working for Seminole County Fire Department in Florida. Sal always had aspirations of becoming a physician. She originally thought about becoming an emergency medical physician because of her experience in EMS. However, it wasn’t until she shadowed her uncle, who is a podiatric physician that she began to think very seriously about podiatric medicine. The ability to select a surgical specialty prior to entering medical school was the deciding factor in her choice to go to podiatric medical school. Her uncle, Cyril Gostich is an OCPM alumni from the class of 1980. KSUCPM was the top choice podiatric medical school for Sal.
Sal is a very busy student. Along with the demands of podiatric medical school, she is the APMSA president-elect and she continues to work part-time as a firefighter/paramedic for Kirtland Fire Department. When she does have some down time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, is an avid cleveland sports fan, and enjoys babysitting her niece
