Divya Katdare (Reshma Shetty) is HankMed's beautiful, intelligent, and ambitious physician assistant. Quick-witted and reliable, 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 Raj, a childhood friend, two summers ago, she turned to Hank and Evan for support when her own family cut her off. She has since repaired those relationships, and now her bond with the Lawson brothers is stronger than ever.
After her tumultuous and wild fling with Rafa last year, Divya's finally ready for a summer on her own terms: having fun, enjoying herself, and doing what she loves most - working with HankMed. But when an unexpected development derails her summer plans, Divya wonders if her life will ever return to normal.
