"I HAVE FOUND THAT THE DRIVING FORCE OF LIFE IS PASSION."

< BACK

I began to realize that photography and writing were just two different ways for me to practice my passion-storytelling. And medicine gave me the opportunity to listen to the stories of my patients' courage and resilience. I am now a regular contributor to the Huffington Post and the Washington Post and I photograph children and family portraits. Along with managing this practice, I hope to provide resources for our patients to practice mindfulness, meditation, yoga and acupuncture.

I have found that the driving force of life is passion. I have somehow managed to create a life which combines all of mine. I look forward to getting to know your family and learning about your passions. What I hope to teach my daughter is what Howard Thurman once wrote, "ask what makes you come alive, and go do it".
