Q. What were some early lessons for you?
A. When I was younger, we lived for many years in a little Eskimo village in Alaska. My father was a rural doctor for the Indian Health Service. He would fly from village to village, and my mother, brother and me would sometimes go with him. We would land in a village, and all the little kids would gather around. While he was treating people, the kids would take us and we’d go play. I learned to connect with people early on.
