They love to travel. Their favorites have been seeing the Hubbard Glacier calving in Alaska, which they reported as awesome, and experiencing the amazing rain forest in Costa Rica.
I love helping people and providing compassionate care. It is very satisfying to guide patients through their recovery process and to be there for them during a difficult time. - Kathlyn Klein, PA-C
