"We met here in Los Angeles when I was visiting my friend. I'm from New York and I was here during New Years of 2004-05. We dated cross-country for a while, then I moved out here later that year. My friend took me to a gathering at the Bonaventure Hotel where my future husband and his friends were also gathering. In the beginning of the relationship, our time together was with the group. Our first alone date was when he came to New York city to visit me. We had a great time taking in the sites of New York City.
"I work at Pioneer Medical Group, which is located next to the Downey Hospital (PIH) in the blue building. I'm a physician's assistant specializing in rheumatology. I was trained in New Jersey at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey located on a Rutgers campus. Physician's assistants are very prevalent on the East Coast. When I came here 10 years ago, it was not very common to have physician's assistants in a doctor's practice. But, since it is such a cost-effective method to provide health care, they are utilizing more physician's assistants and nurse practitioners here."
