This area will hold questions that I get asked, often over a meal.  Or, the random thoughts that I would like to share…

Question: What would you do, if you could do anything for 8 hours a day for the rest of your life, assuming money were no object?

Answer:  Huh…I wrote in my journal as a freshman in college and my essay for graduate school that I wanted open a women’s clinic.  If money were no object, I would have a women’s clinic that expands access for all women.  It’s hard being a girl.
