I guess I would say I'm on the quieter side, not loud or obnoxious. I tend to observe first then participate. I like having good conversation and I enjoy wit and humor. I seek out the fun and the funny. Those around me would say I’m calm and kind. I like to think that I have good empathy for others and try very hard to be accepting and non-reactionary. I think life is about learning and loving, nobody is perfect and I leave the judging to the Man upstairs. I want to live well and live long so I try to maintain my ideal body weight with healthy diet and exercise. I did three years of Bikram Yoga almost nightly, now I'm more in to Vinyasa and Yin. I do some gym time for weights and cardio. I like Paleo, anything you can hunt, fish, pick, gather, collect or dig for diet. I have a super tight relationship with my four kids, three daughters and a son. Two of them hiked the John Muir Trail with me last year and we just climbed Half Dome this summer. I have a deep passion and love for my work, I could not ask for a better profession, everything is spiritual and so is medicine.
