Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I have always enjoyed fixing things, which led me initially to a career in electrical and computer engineering. I was a volunteer firefighter and EMT during that, which led me back to medical school. I thought I wanted to do emergency medicine, but all the interesting cases that come into the emergent department got taken away by the surgeons. I also enjoyed the can-do attitude of surgeons.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have six kids, three dogs, two turtles and, well, there are some wild bunnies in the back yard (if those count).
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Enjoying my family and trying to keep up with my kids. I still find some time for video games (PC!) in the evenings. I used to enjoy rock climbing, soccer, fencing, soccer and hiking but never get the chance to do those anymore.
