“Finding a perfect rhythm and balance every day between the joy of being at home with my
family and the excitement and passion for the work I do is a gift. Being part of an incredible
team and leading the charge to serve others and improve patient care is the best reward. The
old saying goes, if you love what you do you will never work a day in your life. I’ve never worked
a day in my life.
