    Favorite tradition:

    My husband and I say what we are each thankful for!

    In the office:

    We approach each patient with love (while wearing pink or red, including the technicians who have festive scrubs).

    My favorite Valentine’s Day tradition was waking up in the morning to see the treats that my dad put at my spot at the kitchen table. I do the same thing for my three kids now. My dad will always be my only Valentine.

    In the office, nothing says V-Day like staff meeting!

    In the office, I get a few dozen roses and hand them out to our patients. I like to think we save a few men from forgetting about the day! But seriously, it brings a smile to everyone’s face.
