10 Questions with ... Dr. Jen Ashton

1. You come from a family of doctors and nurses, but you've taken your career in multiple directions, which raises the question: How did your media career come about? Did you always plan to serve a dual role in medicine and the media, or was it less expected?

My media career came about by accident. In 2006 I was introduced to Roger Ailes, the President of Fox News Channel, by a friend of mine who was an executive producer. Ailes put me on the air one day, and one week later, I was offered a contract. The rest is history! I now split my time 50/50 between my real medical clinical practice and my media responsibilities. Since both involve communicating medial information in ways that are impactful, clear and thorough, I consider them different shades of the same role.
