Our good friend Alyn graduated with honors today from UC Davis with a Doctor of Medicine Degree. My wife Marilyn and I couldnâ€™t be more proud of her! We first met Alyn while planting flowers in a community garden back when we lived in San Francisco in the mid 1990â€™s and weâ€™ve been friends ever since. Up until about 5 years ago, Alyn had an upwardly mobile job in Silicon Valley doing management work at a high profile software company. So why would she quit a terrific job to go back to school? To follow her dream of becoming a Doctor, of course!
Congratulations Alyn on making your dream come true!
