What drew you to pain management?
"There are a lot of misconceptions about pain management. But it challenges me to find out exactly what is wrong and then determine what I can do about it. It allows me to imagine the possible outcome for someone. I can see the difference it makes in people’s lives."
What is a quote that resonates with you?
"When Maya Angelou said, ‘People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’ It feels appropriate for pain management because it is so important to understand the struggles someone else is going through in order to help them feel their very best.”
