Personal

Personal Interests

When not working, I am usually doing something with my large extended family. One of my most recent hobbies has been to plant seedlings in an effort to reforest some property we have in Canada, which was logged out many years ago.

Why I Became a Radiologist

I am passionate about breast imaging and saving lives with early detection.
