I was born and raised in California. I went to junior college right out of high school in 1983. I went to work at the local drug store at that time and entered the management program. I made it to assistant manager when I decided to change careers. I became a pharmacy tech. I enjoyed that career for 14 years. In 2004 I had the opportunity to go back to college so I took the chance. I graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Ca with a BS in Biology. From there I worked for a biotech company developing antibodies. After five years of biotech work, I decided to move to Belize where I now attend WUHS.
Low Cost Caribbean MD
My love affair with medicine dates back as far as I can remember. So for me, attending a school that could boast the academic resources I need; and also, be located in the Caribbean was a no brainer.
I did my undergrad at Arizona State University and graduated with a BS in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Genetics, Cell and Developmental Biology. I have wanted to be a physician since as long as I can remember.
