Judy Mikacich and family

I couldn't have chosen a more perfect major. HumBio taught me things I knew I wanted to know, and exposed me to many avenues I had no idea I would enjoy! I followed a circuitous route to my career, starting with writing for Sunset magazine, then research at the Center for Research in Disease Prevention at Stanford, then nursing school at USF, then back to premed classes. Now I educate on a smaller scale in the office, but also on a much larger scale through medical education, publications and medical consulting for television...and, of course, at home raising our three young girls!
