I had a difficult childhood and found a calling (of sorts) and became a pediatrician....every single day for the last 19 years I have started and ended every day knowing that I helped someone. Whether it be by protecting a child or helping a parent or treating an illness or promoting wellness (physical, emotional, and psychological), I can go to sleep each night feeling that I have lived my best day and have made a difference in someone's life. The most interesting thing about living my passion and my gift is that each day I leave work feeling that I GOT more than I gave. That, I believe, is the definition of a gift.
