OTHER: Dr. Amelia Shepherd is the youngest sister of late brother Derek, and like her brother, she is also an excellent neurosurgeon whose ambition in proving herself equal to her brother is only surpassed by her surgical skill. Graduating in the top of her class at Harvard, Dr. Shepherd completed her surgical residency at Johns Hopkins. She has experienced many struggles over the years, including a difficult battle with substance abuse and the loss of a child, who was born with a fatal neurological anomaly. Amelia decided to relocate to Seattle and join the staff at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
