I love my parents, my 3 sisters that I grew up with, my church family and my best friend. My parents in particular are amazing people.  My dad is a pastor and my mom is a nurse.  They dedicate their lives in service to others, and it’s probably why I ended up in medicine.

To you, what does it mean to care?

I think caring begins with awareness… awareness of an imperfect condition.  It is so important that this then follows up with action, which can come in so many forms whether it is time of service, donations, or investing effort and energy in making improvements.
