My dad is a higher up in the customer service sector for a major company. One major thing he drilled into me is don’t put stupid shit on the Internet if it can be tracked back to you. This was around 2005 when he started telling me this.
I’ve made sure it’s hard to find me on the internet. I rarely use social media. If I do, it’s light hearted and neutral. My current career is between marketing and customer service so that normally is a negative, but luckily I found an employer that recognizes my talents over my internet presence.
Wipe your shit guys. I’m great at researching people for work and I’ve found stuff that most would assume is impossible to find for my employers. Even if it’s “hidden” off google, if I have your full name it takes me less than 15 minutes to find your family members, friends, and spouse and ultimately find you based off that info. It’s not hard.
I’m vocal here, but in real life I’m strictly neutral. I learned that from my father. Career-wise you will happen upon every walk of life and have to learn how to accept it or flounder. Realize your opinions, right or wrong, have no place in your job field unless someone is being outwardly terrible (we have refused service to a man who called an employee a liberal rat whore for no reason). It’s not difficult unless your whole identity is wrapped in your political/religious beliefs.

The irony here is that the college she graduated from, the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, bills itself to be "rooted in Jewish tradition, built on Jewish values."
Here is her public statement.
Several social media comments posted on my twitter account years ago have surfaced recently, causing pain, anguish, and a public outcry. I wish sincerely and unequivocally to apologize for the offensive and hurtful language contained in those posts. This statement is not intended to excuse the content of the posts, but rather to demonstrate that those words do not represent who I am and the principles I stand for today.
I visited Israel and the Palestinian Territories every summer throughout my adolescent years. I became incensed at the suffering of the Palestinians under the Israeli occupation. The injustice and brutality of the occupation continues to concern me, and I believe every champion of human rights owes it to humanity to work towards a just and peaceful resolution of this crisis.
As a girl in my teens and early twenties, I had difficulty constructively expressing my intense feelings about what I witnessed in my ancestral land. Like many young people lacking life experience, I expressed myself by making insensitive remarks and statements of passion devoid of thought, not realizing the harm and offense these words would cause.
These posts were made years before I was accepted into medical school, when I was a naïve, and impressionable girl barely out of high school. I matured into a young adult during the years I attended college and medical school, and adopted strong values of inclusion, tolerance, and humanity. I take my profession and the Hippocratic Oath seriously and would never intentionally cause harm to any patient seeking medical care. As a physician, I will always strive to give the best medical treatment to all people, regardless of their race, religion, ethnicity, or culture.
I have learned from this experience and am sorry for the pain I have caused. I pray that the Jewish community will understand and forgive me. I hope to make amends so that we can move forward and work together towards a better future for us all.
