6.  What's the best part of your job? Spending bits of time with my patients. I enjoy getting to know who they are, their roles in the community. I enjoy conversations that sometimes have nothing to do with a person's physical health. I learn so much from my patients. 


7.  What have you found to be the best part of working in community health in West Philly? I would have to say meeting the community members has been an honor.  I have patients who are humanitarians, civic leaders, community activists, scrap-metalist, artists, entrepreneurs, mothers/ fathers, and dreamers. So many of my patients' stories inspire me. I am a better person after serving in this community.


8.  What's your favorite song and why?  A SONG FOR YOU sang by Donny Hathaway. To me this is the best composition ever written and executed. The lyrics are about love, self reflection, asking for forgiveness, learning who matters most, and living in the here and now. Many people don't recognize the importance of all the things above until it's too late.
