What else would you like people to know about you?

1. I love to travel and prefer the mountains to the beach.
2. As a certified medical language specialist, I taught medical transcription for several years and transcribed thousands of physical exams and surgical reports, so I'm full of useless medical information, but if you need to spell anything, I'm your man.
3. What I know for sure: "Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge HIm and he shall direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6
