Personal Interests

Medicine has been a very personally fulfilling career for me, knowing that I could intervene in a positive way in someone’s life at their time of need. Dealing with a medical problem, whether major or minor, leaves me with a feeling of satisfaction if I am able to help. This way I can sleep at night and enjoy the other side of my personal life, spending time with family and friends and my two constant companions, Sally and Gypsy, my two adopted puppies. Traveling has always been very important to me, as I can learn from different cultures and people. Gardening has also become important to me as I have grown older. Life in any form should be appreciated and valued.
