"I grew up in a town south of Pittsburgh. I have been married to my partner, Dr. Bickerton since 1980. When not seeing patients, I have been involved in volunteering at local schools through the years and more recently, providing active educational support to our home schooled daughter. I enjoy staying fit with Zumba and Latin exercise classes, as well as walking. I also enjoy an occasional round of golf with my husband and daughters and reading fiction."
