For me humor is super important, it’s part of what makes life truly enjoyable. As healthcare providers our jobs are inherently serious. We have people’s health and lives in our hands, as an eye doctor I’m the caretaker of one of our most valued senses. People come to us worried, and on top of diagnosing and treating whatever they’ve got going on, we have to make sure they feel calm and supported.

The only way to do that is to take the time to really take care of ourselves. For me that’s spending time doing the things I love, things like painting, sewing, crocheting and embroidering, spending time with my family and dog, eating tons of great food, getting out into the beautiful nature of the PNW, and never taking myself too seriously in the process. It’s really cool to create something from nothing, it’s better when it’s something like embroidering unicorn guts. We all have the power to make the world a little bit more beautiful, a little more interesting, and way more hilarious by sharing our unique aesthetics, stories, points of view, and jokes with the world.

Life is kind of ridiculous especially right now, the only way to get through it is to laugh with each other.

#withoutthewhitecoat I am a hotdog. I'm into nonsense and art, I am a creator, a cheese connoisseur, a sausage dog lover, a protester and volunteer, a friend and wife. Kinda a weirdo, but mostly just a regular person.
