Gary Kinney

Biography

I am an obstetrician/gynaecologist in clinical practice in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. I am also a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia. I have a special interest in gynaecologic oncology and women's issues.

That is only one of many hats, however. I have a small farm and raise llamas -before that it was sheep, and goats and chickens... Well, the eggs and the racks paid for the upkeep.

Oh yes, and I also paraglide whenever I find time from hiking, kayaking, sailing, and running.

Did I even mention writing?
