Dr. Pozun says:
“I love spending time with my husband and 4 active boys and 2 large dogs (Lola, a great Pyrenese and Scarlett our Goldendoodle.) I have inadvertently become highly sports-minded, educated through my boys and spend many weeknights and weekends at their baseball, soccer, and flag football games when not helping out with homework! I love to spend free time on my kids’ school campus and helping out with various classroom activities, even serving as a room mom for one of my boys.
We love to attend MLB games to cheer on our D-Backs. I find great joy in walking, hiking and spending time outdoors, appreciating the wonder and beauty of nature. I love to travel with my family, beaches, museums and amusement parks top our favorites list. If there is a roller coaster or extreme ride to be conquered, you will find me in the front of the line!
