Do you have a favorite vacation destination?

It’s a small village in the Italian Alps called Resia. I have been going there with my family since I was a child, and now I take my kids there when I can.

If you could go anywhere, where would you go?

On a mission to the moon and give acupuncture treatments to the astronauts!

How do you think someone close to you would describe you in a few words?

Trustworthy. Resilient. Amazing Cook.

Dr. Carra’s cat, Makkia.

Do you prefer to listen to music or read a book?

I’m kind of a nerd; I listen to audiobooks all the time.

Are you a cat or dog person?

We have a cat, but my daughter pet sits and we often have a zoo at our house!
