“I felt called to serve in an area with a shortage of physicians, which meant either a rural setting or the inner city. I thought I could do a lot more here than in a larger city. I had many other opportunities, especially in Detroit. But I didn’t like having my family out in the suburbs and then having to drive 45 minutes one way every day to get downtown. I like rural America. I found a small, friendly town in Dowagiac and have been happy here.”
