'Life is a beautiful adventure
to be lived in optimal health and happiness.’ I love health, wellness, and
medicine. I am in awe of the complexities and differences in everyone’s
individual body. I have spent a lifetime learning, and continue to learn
every day of my career of over 25 years. I love partnering with families
to maintain their health and well-being, to keep them out of the hospital and
living their best life.
