Tym: "Technically I was born overseas in Japan while my father served in the air force, but I reckon I am as local a Texan as you can get. My ancestors include the Wimberleys on my father's side and the Pfulgers on my mother's side (Wimberley and Pfulgerville, TX.) I am a fly fisherman and former competitive soccer player. I love to travel and enjoy uncommon sights, like the old hotel in Mineral Wells. I own a 1986 Honda Rebel motorcycle, enjoy the outdoors and grew up on one of the last ranches in the Austin, Texas area. I have worked a variety of jobs before running my own clinic, including stints with juvenile probation, emergency medicine and as a resident counselor at Texas School for the Deaf and Blind. My most peculiar employment was for a cabaret theatre in Glacier National Park! My beautiful wife, Talia, is a well known bluegrass musician who transplanted herself from Manhattan, NY, after working in the Ameri-Corps program. We met on Match.com! We have a fabulous little elf-daughter named Ceila and a a jellybean-son, named Sawyer. They call me Pops.
Tym: "I began working with patients at age 5, often joining my grandfather at work. He managed a large facility for MHMR and the elderly. After college I was employed with various institutions focused on mental health care for troubled youth. While in Boston pursuing a degree in para-medicine I was hired as a resident aide for a gentleman who was paraplegic. Back in Austin I decided on a graduate degree in the medical field. While working in the emergency room at Seton Hospital I changed my major to acupuncture. My varied experiences in health care led me to these insights: It is all related. There has to be a better way.
