Personal Philosophy

1 Corinthians 13:2: “And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.”

We are truly our brothers' and sisters' keepers. I look forward to passing on my knowledge and experience in the medical arts and sciences to the next generation of PAs, so that they can use their acquired knowledge and skills to improve the lot of mankind, by devoting all or some of their time, to serving the under-served, while spreading the word of God.

"To teach is to learn twice." :

This reminds us, that although we are educators, we must must remember that we are still learning, and oftentimes we learn from our students.
