Professional Musician and Teacher, SG (Start)

Jan 1, 1993

During these years in St. George, Utah, I paid my way through college teaching private music lessons, and playing guitar and piano in restaurants and for conventions and weddings.

A typical week consisted of four or five half-hour piano or guitar lessons each day, and two three-hour performance “sets” at local restaurants on Friday and Saturday. My enjoyment in meeting with different people throughout the week is one of the reasons I chose medicine. These small discussions about their musical progress and our lives in general were enriching for me, and the face-to-face interaction is one of the reasons I’ve chosen a primary care field rather than another specialty with less doctor/patient interaction.

Roof and Hungry I Restaurant Piano (start)?

Nov 15, 1995

I continued to pay much of my tuition at the University of Utah by playing piano on the weekends at The Roof restaurant as well as a few other restaurants. I found this job extremely enjoyable. It was a chance to unwind and relax, and a time to polish skills outside my school classes.

U of U Health Sciences Volunteer (start)?

Dec 29, 1995

I had a great time in the emergency department at the University of Utah. I was able to see many of the principles I was learing in classes applied to real patients. Besides re-stocking supplies and running messages and medicines, I spent a lot of time trying to make patients more comfortable. It was a good time for me to become more accustomed to caregive/patient interaction. Through this patient contact, I was able to begin to develop my bedside manner.

I was also frequently used as a Spanish translator between doctors and patients.

Spanish Classes at Elementary begin?

Jan 15, 1996

Early in the morning I would ride my bicycle to a nearby elementary school and teach hour-long basic Spanish classes to ten to fifteen elementary-age children. I had a great time learning how better to communicate with children. I think this time has helped me to better relate to my pediatric patients.

Tutoring High school Students, Outreach program through U of U (begin)

Aug 15, 1996

After my classes at the University, I would drive to different high schools in the Salt Lake area and tutor students in various subjects including algebra, calculus, biology, Spanish, and chemistry. Students ranged from those "at-risk" of failing to those in advanced placement classes. Now, working in medicine, I find that adolescents present a particular communications challenge, and I am glad that I had this tutoring experience to help me develop that skill.

U of U Teaching Assistant Begin?

Jan 15, 1997 - Mar 15, 1997

I was very excited to be chosen to teach a physiology 101 section to a group of 15 students, including many pre-med students. I was also surprised to see how much work it was to prepare a concise and organized 50 minute review of their lectures for the week. The experience taught me how important the organization and maintenance of complex information is to acquiring lasting knowledge.

We hung out at mel’s for most of the time, went to Smith’s to get some ice cream and oreos, then just sat around talking. Now I’m tired so I’m going to bed.
