I live in Asheville, NC, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. I share my home with my 2 dogs and a cat. I enjoy crafts and work with animal fibers, spinning,knitting, felting. I am a semi-retired physician, board certified in family practice, with emergency and urgent care experience. Before medical school I practiced as a pharmacist. My son, Andreas, and his wife, Misti, welcomed my new grandson this February.
