What is your favorite quote?
" If you don’t make time for your wellness you will be forced to make time for your illness.” - Joyce Sunada
Tell me about your family.
"I am blessed with family as I am happily married for over 30 years to my high-school sweetheart who is my best friend with a super fantastic son and daughter in law who are both Rocket Scientists!"
What is your favorite activity or hobby outside of work?
"My hobbies include cooking and baking as well as gardening. I have many, many houseplants (some 35 years old) that I love to share. My husband recently told me I had to give plants away before I could bring any more home! I also love exercising, biking, and traveling.
If you could spend a day with anyone in the world (dead or alive) who would it be?
"Definitely my grandma Betty Bear! She was awesome and I miss her very much."
We just want to thank all of our patients, referring providers, and our community for bearing with us during this most difficult and unprecedented time in our infectious diseases' careers. Our providers and staff have been spread thin since COVID emerged, spending almost 100% of their time treating the severely ill in our community hospitals up and down the coast of South Carolina. We are doing our best to get back in the office as quickly as possible. Please help us get there quicker by getting vaccinated. Thank you for your patience.
