About Me


I Love My Work!

There is nothing like seeing people become happier, healthier and more vibrant when they are no longer in pain and have regained function and activities they thought were lost.


What Makes Me Tick:

Enjoying ethnic food with my friends while having great conversation feeds my social hunger. Travels to see the wildlife and cultures of different lands feeds my wanderlust and fossils remind me of the wonder of life in its infinite forms.
