Why do you do what you do?

I feel that my profession is a calling and my job is to serve others, locally and abroad. One of my passions is mission medicine. I coordinate and take medical mission teams to provide much needed medical services to the indigent population of Peru. My family and I also volunteer with multiple local organizations that address homelessness and the food insecure. I’m also a volunteer provider at St. Joseph’s Medical Clinic in Waukesha.
