Completing a Pediatric Residency in 2012 and will continue my quest to address the enormous obesity epidemic among our youth.
My first love will remain the arts, and acting, singing, and comedy have brought me the greatest joy. Having a silent film star, Edna Payne, as a Grandmother, and a first class Cinematographer for the Mary Tyler Moore show, Paul Uhl, as a Father, have genetically embossed my quest toward performing.
I am also licensed to practice Medicine in California and Texas with backgrounds in Accounting and Real Estate as a CPA and R.E. Broker. With a working career as a former U.S. Navy Physician with the USS AMERICA Battlegroup during the Bosnia conflict in 1995-1996, and as a diplomat with U.S. State Department as desk officer for Tanzania and Uganda under Sec. State Colin Powell, I endeavor to provide top-notch advice for my clients.
It is my relentless desire to assist clients toward making the right decisions for their health, financial, and economic needs that have made me a sought after no-nonsense 'go-to' advisor.
