What I like to do outside of the lab: I enjoy spending time (biking, hiking, tracking) at the Wm. Hawrelak Park, with family and friends. I also enjoy reading poetry collections of Michael Ondaatje, and fictional works of Abraham Verghese. I involve myself weekly at the University of Alberta Hospital, as a Literary Artist, and I volunteer with the Special Olympics Edmonton in training intellectually disabled athletes for the Canada and Provincial Games in the sport of speed skating.
