My life…

While I worked at the Mayo Clinic I was invited to speak in many countries and visit many cultures. I have always enjoyed meeting people. I love travelling to the Andes specifically Peru and the Lake Titicacca region of Peru and Bolivia. I have met many wonderful and beautiful souls along my travels. While there is such beauty on Planet Earth, there is also so much ugliness, poverty and hunger. I established a non-profit foundation (Divine Heart Foundation, Inc) few years ago through which I hope to help impoverished children and abused women in the years to come and hopefully do my little bit in giving back
