When did you join MUSC? August 2006

What’s your favorite part about working in global health? Student/scholar interaction - international and otherwise.

What advice would you give to an international student or faculty member coming to MUSC for the first time? Yes, you are here to work hard, but take time to enjoy yourself. Beautiful Charleston has a plethora of unique offerings. It is scientifically proven you will be more productive when you take time to relax and enjoy. Try not to 'live' in your lab or classroom.

How do you like to spend your free time? Being in nature anywhere; birds and all flora and fauna; walking on the beach with sweet Storm, my 80lb dog; traveling anywhere and everywhere; spending time with family and friends, especially the elders; gardening; and live music.

What is your favorite place to travel? All...definitely prefer travel off the beaten path.
