My education and interests have been strongly science centered. Right after college I applied to enter my church's monastic order. While waiting I worked selling lab analyzing equipment. After entering the order, I left in less than a year and soon afterward got married and we had a child. A few years later I was in a position to return to school and continue my medical training as a acupuncturist.
