Q: Which FASA Dr is your favorite & why?
A: My favorite FASA doctor is of course, Huebs. He is like a father I never had and I can talk to him anytime if I needed. He is good about including his team in his care plans so we are treating this patient as a team and doing the best we can for them. He is caring, funny and so super smart.
Q: What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

Q: What clinic location is your favorite?

Q: What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13?

Q: What has been your favorite experience at FASA so far?
A: Favorite experience with FASA is each time we have a gathering and we are able to bring our spouses. I love so much to have gotten to know co-worker spouses and to have gotten to introduce FASA's crew to my own husband. It really makes it feel like family and I so love that.
