What led you to pursue your career?
It was passion that led me to my career; passion that was nurtured and not allowed to wither.
I am forever grateful to those who fed those small flames. I have always loved science and its methods of discovery. Even at a young age, I dismantled toys and discarded devices seeking to comprehend their inner workings. The toys were most often mine but at times they were those of my siblings. Nurturing this inner passion was the encouragement of my parents. They taught us to value all learning and knowledge, whether in the art and letters, in politics, history, biology or astronomy.
