She said that, as a fellowship director, she cannot tell her trainees exactly where they should go in their careers. Instead, she wants junior faculty to understand what they are passionate about, then help them figure out how to make that a career.

Shereck's own career started in high school, long before she knew what a peditric oncologist actually was. While working on the pediatric ward as a third-year medical student, she discovered that her teenage self identified the perfect role.
