She traveled back to her hometown in Maine for the induction ceremony in June, even garnering a funny shout-out from a former high school wrestler who chose that sport after Dr. Selander dominantly blocked his shot on the basketball court.
“It was a really nice time reminiscing,” she said.
Today, Dr. Selander doesn’t have much time for sports as she juggles her demanding career and growing family. She’s married to Dr. Earl Han, a Tidelands Health orthopedic surgeon, and they are raising three daughters, Nora, 4; Luna, 3, and Ayla, 3 months.
But the lessons remain.
“My sports career was much more to me than a fun time had in high school and college,” she said. “My experience in training for basketball, track and soccer translated into life skills that were vital in becoming successful in my career.”
