When I was young, I was pretty sure that I wanted to be a ski patroller and a doctor (please see Rolling Hills Elementary Yearbook, 3rd ed., 1998). Life's travels, however, brought me first to Washington state and Germany in hot pursuit of German literature. Afterwards, I found myself in outdoor education and breadmaking. It was in the Tetons that I finally decided to give ski patrol a try - loved it - and then after time spent in the world of snow and avalanches, I decided the time was ripe to pursue medicine, and the emergency department was where I found my medical nirvana.
