» Coolest thing about her job: With rehabilitation medicine, you don’t just save a life—you improve the quality, as well. 

» Last thing she read: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. It’s a story about a dog, told from the dog’s perspective. 

» Last thing she ate that she loved: I was at a party at Yangming restaurant where I had a simple dish of green beans sautéed with almonds. It sounds as vanilla as it comes, but it was so beautiful and tasty.
