In short, I am an anesthesiologist who has been doing locum tenens work for over a decade. My career has taken her all over the United States and overseas on several medical missions. Graduating from Salem College, I worked for several years before returning to medical school at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I completed her residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and a fellowship at Virginia Mason Hospital in Seattle, Washington.
Outside of medicine, I enjoy travel (go figure!), reading, hiking, cooking and am a huge Jeopardy! fan as well as an avid solver of the New York Times crossword puzzle (see lovethecrossword.com for my blog devoted to this topic).
