My Story:
I work for a mail order pharmacy. I'm that person who helps find where your medications are, gets you to a pharmacist when you have questions, helps refill medications, and explains copays and deductibles. That's what I do in my days, and I like helping people. I believe that everyone can and should be of help to someone or something, at some time.

The practice of medicine, for all types of animals including humans, fascinates me. I came to WebMD out of boredom and stayed because of the wealth of good information that can be found here. I learn something new every day I come here. I also have a small community called "The Healing Fire."

What I Like:
Authors: Leo Tolstoy, James Herriot, Tom Clancy, Diane Duane, Anne McCaffrey, Wendy and Richard Pini, Piers Anthony, Tolkein, Heinlein, quite a few others.

Movies/TV: I think I used to watch those... um, Star Wars?

Music: Oldies, Folk, Classical, Symphonic Metal, Power Metal, Techno.

Hobbies: Reading, Drawing, chasing cats, raising virtual horses, admiring rocks, one on one roleplaying.

Other: Caffeine is tasty.

What Inspires Me: The stars. They are so vast, just the thought that when I look up at the night sky I am also looking millions of years back through time, the thought of standing on this little blue spinning marble out in the sea of the universe reminds me of who and what I am. Now, if I could only step OFF this marble from time to time!
