Specialty: CardiologyPractice: EvergreenHealth CardiologyHospital affiliation: EvergreenHealthWhat attracted you to your specialty?My interest in cardiology started during my residency. I had originally wanted to be an internist, but when I saw how people were so sick and got better so quickly, I changed my focus. It is very gratifying when you thought someone was going to die and then they walk out of the hospital a week later.

Can I first just say how much I love voting via mail? Oh, the hours-long voting lines I've stood in at libraries, VFW halls and cafeterias in my great native land of Oh-Hi-O. So, kudos Washington, on that genius move.

Armed with good timing and the grace of an easy traffic day, bliss awaits you in the form of San Juan Islands tranquility. Getting there is half the fun (right?)—the other half, once you’re there, is all about taking it easy.

Within months of establishing their settlement in November 1851, Seattle’s founding families realized they had made a mistake. Their location on the western, forested shore of Elliott Bay could not support a good harbor, which would be central to the new community’s success. Trade vessels from the Pacific Ocean could travel down Puget Sound to its toe at Elliott Bay but without a deep-water dock the journey was a waste. So in the middle of winter, three men boarded a canoe with a heavy line and horseshoes in order to sound the depths of the rest of the bay.
The Seattle Marriott Waterfront hotel was ablaze on May 14 during the Go Red for Women Luncheon fundraiser in support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red movement.

On April 25, the Cinerama theater rolled out its crimson carpet and welcomed the masses to the seventh annual National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY), a four-day lineup of workshops, panels and short films by directors ages 22 and younger from around the world. Post-film revelers were shuttled to the Museum of History & Industry for an all-ages after-party.
