Successfully (so far) raising 2 incredible kids while working part-time all these years. I believe that deciding to work part-time was one of the best decisions I have ever made. If my kids end up in a therapist's office, it won't be because I wasn't around (maybe it will be because I WAS around!)
Winning the Best Chief Resident of the Year award. Well, to be accurate, I won the popular (i.e. cockroach) vote. I believe it was actually Neil Murphy who won the official electoral vote, or was it Mark Mering?
Hiking, cooking, playing music with friends, listening to jazz.
The "No talent" shows, residency softball games, crazy dress up parties, and the infamous meeting with Tony Vuturo - do they have dictation yet at FPO? And such gratitude we all experienced when Neil and Mark were found ALIVE after getting lost in Arivaipa Canyon - we didn't have to take extra call for the dead interns!
Married for almost 25 years to Steve Rachbach ('86). We have 2 sons, Ben (1989) and Tim (1994). Ben graduated from Swarthmore College in 2011 and Tim will graduate from Catalina Foothills High School in 2013.
