What are you passionate about? Taking good care of myself so that I can take good care of my family and patients. I try to eat well and exercise -- jogging, biking, yoga and I especially love hiking. Yoga provides wonderful health benefits and makes me feel very relaxed.
Why did you become a doctor? I always enjoyed anatomy and learning how things work. And, my grandmother was in a role similar to a physician assistant.
What is one of your favorite memories? While I was fortunate enough to live in Germany during my medical internship, I greatly enjoyed hiking in the many beautiful mountains.
