Where are you from?

I was born in Rochester, New York and moved to Miami when I was four years of age. One year, during the harsh winters of New York, my father was sent to Miami on a work assignment. Mesmerized by the sunshine and warm weather, he packed up his family and moved to South Florida.

What brought you to the University of Miami?

Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center! Being part of a family directly affected by the devastation of cancer, I was impelled to somehow take part in giving back or just making a difference in the community.
