My partner in crime

Lisa has been by my side for years and she stuck with me as I matured as a physician and person. We have travelled often together and are taking this international medical journey side-by-side. 

Each day, Lisa rounds with me helping with translation, follows-up on sick children and will often help guide therapy. She frequently recommends things such as changing a patient to oral antibiotics, stopping IV fluids, changing the feeding regimen, checking a patient more frequently, trying a different approach to teaching a family or changing the oxygen delivery tubing. And yes, she is always correct. 

I am unsure if I could tolerate working and living alone in the remote developing world without Lisa. She gives me a sense of calmness and normalcy, and I am very lucky to have her in my life. 

Below are my favorite pictures of her over the last few years:
