“As soon as healing takes place, go out and heal somebody else.”

About me in 60 seconds
I am most passionate about promoting prevention, health and healing.
In my opinion, the biggest shift in the current state of the health care will happen when preventable diseases are prevented.
I believe that each of us should be the CEO of our own health care. I want you to be the best CEO you can be, so I am here to help you to be an educated and motivated CEO.
Two of the top things I cherish most are my relationships and time.
I lived in three countries: born and raised in Armenia; lived in Germany for three years; since 2004 I live in the United States. All three countries have a very special place in my heart.
I love learning new things and I love teaching. Currently I teach Human Health and Disease, Biology of Aging, Cancer Biology, Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology.
I am most inspired by independent thinkers,
by people who challenge the status quo,
by people who are genuinely kind,
by people who take adversity as an opportunity to grow,
by unexpected acts of kindness,
by seeing/hearing/witnessing natural or man-made creations.
I am happiest when I am with people I love, in nature, doing creative work, traveling, reading, enjoying delicious food or music, seeing babies laugh and just seeing people happy.
