“I feel very blessed with the opportunities I have received for training, in formal schooling, hands-on learning, and countless hours of continuing education. Most importantly, I treasure the loyal patients and staff members who make every day special in my life. I look forward to continuing service to my patients and my community, and actively giving back so long as I am able.
