I grew up in Fort Worth, TX before moving to Houston for college and graduate school. My MD/MBA program helped set my interests not only in clinical medicine, but also in making healthcare systems perform better for everyone. Seeking new experiences, my wife and I moved to high-energy Chicago during residency, and then to beautiful Seattle for fellowship. But our hearts never left Texas, and so we moved back once I found an exciting opportunity at a world-class institution -- UT Southwestern Medical Center!
