Annapurna base camp, Nepal, 2013  This trip was taken before monsoon season in the spring, when the leeches abound (FYI if you ever want to travel there at this time of year). I was invited to join the game with the boys but I'm terrible at volleyball and preferred watching and taking photos.

Therapeutic Areas

I am always one to enjoy a good challenge, at work or in life. It keeps life interesting and it keeps a person motivated to learn, to experience new things, and to grow. What better professional challenge is there than in working across therapeutic areas?

As you can see below, I have had the opportunity to work on a wide range of therapeutic areas. The areas in which I have the most experience include Alzheimer's disease, atrial fibrillation (including a winning pitch), cystic fibrosis, gastroenterology (including a winning pitch), vaccines, and venous thromboembolism. I am always looking to get more exposure to therapeutic areas in which I have less or no experience. 

Alaska, 2012 This was part of a 7-day mountaineering course. One of the most physically challenging and uncomfortable trips I've ever been on but I have to say I absolutely loved visiting Alaska (ok, minus the mosquitoes but they didn't bother me unless I was at lower/warmer elevations). I have never seen so many bald eagles in my life. At night, we would hear the marmots exploring the campsite. Our guides called them "whistling pigs." Too bad I never caught a glimpse of them.
