After high school, I chose to attend Gonzaga University to work towards my career goal of becoming a physician.   Because my studies were my number one priority, I decided I would have to approach my magic in a different way.

I combined my abilities as a magician and my desire to become a physician by volunteering at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane.  I started this my first semester of my freshmen year and continued with it until the day I graduated.  This was like a second beginning to my work as a magician. There, I learned about the healing power of magic.   Often, I had parents pull me aside and tell me that my magic made their child smile or laugh for the first time in days or even weeks.
