I grew up in a loving family of hard-working God-loving, nurturing parents in the NYC borough of Staten Island. Yes, the forgotten borough with probably the highest cancer rate around.
I know, I know if you are from the tri-state area you probably have a preconceived image of me. Not exactly a FARM girl living off the land! Although in many ways I did feel as though I grew up with a piece of the country that’s for another time.
I’m a practicing podiatrist in NYC and a board-certified foot surgeon. What a privilege it has been to serve others and offer to heal. In my 20 years of practicing, I have learned a great deal from my patients….what makes someone heal? Is it the physical treatment? I know that is one component, but there is soooo MUCH more!!
