Medical Society of Sedgwick County
Hometown: Wichita, Kansas.
First job: I was an aerospace engineer at Oceaneering Space Systems in Houston.
Why I chose a career in medicine: I enjoy the science of medicine and working with the people involved—patients as well as other physicians and members of the health care team.
Not too many people know: I am much older than I look and have had another career in aerospace engineering before going into medicine.
Most rewarding thing about being a doctor: The opportunity to play a major role in keeping children healthy and happy.
One word that describes me: Team player (okay that's not really one word). I can also be described as persistent.
