In her spare time, Dr. Ozzy used to play ice hockey, but now she has moved on to a less dangerous pursuit - bird watching! She has close to 200 birds on her life list! Dr. Ozzy also loves to travel, hike, and mountain bike whenever she can.
Finally, Dr. Ozzy believes that all things can be done with grit, passion, and persistence.
