Divya Katdare (Reshma Shetty) is HankMed’s beautiful, intelligent, and ambitious Physician Assistant.  Divya’s become more than just an integral member of the HankMed team over the past few summers – she’s become part of their family.  After Divya called off her arranged marriage to a childhood friend, her parents cut her off, and she turned to Hank and Evan for support.  She has since repaired her family relationships, and now her bond with the Lawsons is stronger than ever.

However, after a wild fling with Rafa, an international polo star, resulted in an unexpected pregnancy last summer, Divya’s life changed forever. She spent the winter on bed-rest in Jeremiah’s home, their friendship growing deeper than ever before, and she gave birth to a beautiful baby daughter on Valentine’s Day. As the new summer approaches, Divya must find a way to balance the challenges of being a single mother with her job at HankMed.
