Halfway through my college education, I realized that chemistry was not the field that I would pursue. I decided to make medicine my life. As an orthopedic surgeon (I almost chose the path of pediatric orthopedics), my career allowed me to work with the parts of the human system designed to facilitate movement. When I joined the Memorial Foundation Board, I wanted to achieve the same support toward motion in our community.
Becoming a campaign leaser was something I saw as an extension of my life’s work—our health is made up of many parts, the realization of a community with the full spectrum of care contributes to everyone’s wellness. The Children’s Village does so much for kids and families. I have made it a part of my life’s work.
I continue to move with the campaign, which we are so close to completing, because I believe in health, families and our community.
