I grew up in rainy-cloudy Seattle having thought that I had received my life dose of sun while working as Seattle parks lifeguard for many summers...little did I know what was in store for me. After graduating from the University of Washington, I spent half of a year in Paris, France learning the language, drinking way too much wine, and eating one great meal after another. While I rarely find French to be of direct use in New Mexico, it has helped me butcher my way through more than one history and physical in Spanish. I took an interest in public health while in medical school and devoted a few years of my life to the discipline of epidemiology. It was this passion that led me to New Mexico. Here I found an emergency medicine program that saw things just a bit differently than all of the others. And here I have stayed. While not crunching numbers for residents and faculty, I spend my time cooking and trying to find time to travel.
