Fun Facts: "I have been a KU basketball fan for 65 years and have a vague memory of seeing a game in Hoch Auditorium before Allen Fieldhouse was built. I summit-ed Kilimanjaro in 2003 and went to Mt. Everest base camp in 2005 and love trekking in the Himalayas and experiencing different cultures. I have been trekking in Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, India, Mongolia, Madagascar, Italy, and Peru and made a trip to see the mountain gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda.
I enjoy photography and traveling. I have collected a wide array of apothecary bottles and show globes as well as other glass pieces. I have been blessed to enjoy what I do for a living and look forward to going to the office and seeing patients. There is the old saying, "If you enjoy what you do, it is not work," and I feel like I have not worked my entire adult life."
