What do you like most about teaching at RVUCOM?
I brag that I have the best of two worlds: teaching eager-to-learn students in the hands-on primary care skills lab and providing care to a deserving group of veterans.
What do you do in your spare time?
In my “spare” time, I have a lifetime love of fitness including competitive swimming and skiing. I love to spend time with my family – skiing, boating, hiking and biking. I recently swam the 1.5 mile “Escape from Alacatraz” (part of the Sharkfest Swim Series) with my son and daughter. I swam in 58 degree, shark-infested waters without a wet suit and earned third place in my age group.
What advice do you have for first-year students?
My advise to students is to seek for balance in your life with your spouse, family, career, faith, life-long learning and fitness.
Fun Facts about you?
One of my favorite quotes is: “The measure of the greatness of a nation is how they care for their elderly and infirm.”
