I would say that I was always interested in science and found biology incredibly intriguing so I wanted to establish a career in that realm. As a senior in high school, I was able to study a human cadaver and I became pretty fascinated with the idea of learning more about the human body at that time.
From very early on in his life he was able to learn and appreciate what it is to use one’s own hands and mind to help and heal and we are incredibly proud to have him as part of the PCVI Family!
