Forever a believer in working hard to follow the suggestions that the universe places in front of me, I have a remarkably varied career.
Starting as a veterinarian, but hesitant to choose between the array of species, I specialized in anesthesia and pain management.
Lacking satisfactory answers for the chronic pain this brought into my path, I added acupuncture, and then various other forms of physical medicine.
Needing language to explain the benefits I see from these therapies to a bunch of scientifically trained anesthesiologists, I delved into the research and started learning a complex conversation.
So now I travel around the country and the world talking about physiology, pharmacology, and the pharmacological effects of non-pharmaceutical interventions.
And I still wanted to work on that vast array of species- so I do. Between dogs and cats, horses and zoo animals, they keep me honest, and humble.
