more about me-where I’m coming from

I am a woman who grew up in Oklahoma, married, attended medical school and completed a residency in family medicine. Along the way I gained two sons and raised them with my husband while practicing medicine. I also traveled outside the United States, both with and without my husband, to do short term medical mission/humanitarian trips.

My professional and personal experiences will provide stories that I will share here, as well as  the medical knowledge that I have gained along the way, and still accumulate regularly.
