“I developed valuable experience before medical school as a nursing assistant, both in a nursing home and later in a hospital. It was through those experiences that I learned what is involved in caring for people on every level, and developed my respect for nursing staff for being the "front lines" in patient care. My parents taught me well. From my father the investigative journalist, I've learned to be a tireless investigator who won't rest until I understand the underlying disease processes in all of my patients. From watching my mother, the special education teacher, I've learned to enjoy teaching trainees and patients alike.”
