Katherine Twombley, MD
I really enjoy being challenged every single day of my career. Whether it is being faced with a complex patient or striving to find the answers to my research questions, one thing is for sure; I am never bored!
I took three years off between college and medical school to “find myself.” I learned lots of real life skills from each job during that time. I was a high school science and math teacher (taught me patience), waitress (taught me customer satisfaction skills), in-home-healthcare-provider (taught me to understand the whole family, not just the patient), nanny (helped me remember that I love to play with kids), tutor (improved my teaching skills) and emergency medical technician (I can now back any vehicle into any parking spot no matter how small)!! At night, I would occasionally sing in local bars (helped with my public speaking and work life balance skills)! Last fun fact is that my husband has a GOLD Olympic medal in Taekwondo from the 1991 All-Africa Games representing Egypt. So Cool!!!!
