Confucius said, "If you plan for a year, plant rice. If you plan for 10 years, plant trees.

If you plan for 100 years, train men." Through education, I try to plant seeds of inspiration in those I teach, whether my "students" are patients, caregivers, or health care professionals. My ultimate goal is to inspire others to become effective educators, thus creating a rippling effect that positively impacts the lives of future generations indefinitely through my students' hands.
