Episode 34 Dr. Victor Goodyer, maxillofacial surgeon, adventurer
2 days ago
My guest today is Dr. Victor Goodyer. Vic is a maxillofacial surgeon, who cares deeply about people, has an adventurous spirit, has beaten many odds, and sees “old age” as a career in itself. Vic lives on the quaint Isle d’Orleans, just outside the old city of Quebec, Canada and despite our geographical distance, has been a dear friend for over 30 years. He recounts the impact his tall, meticulous, British father and short, loving Italian mother had on his life, his attraction to challenge, sports and eventually medicine. Vic has enjoyed adventures on water, land and sky; he sailed across the Atlantic Ocean, motorcycled throughout the States and Canada, as well as built and flown his own plane. In anticipating for and now embracing retirement, Vic has become more curious about spirituality, has learned to listen to the wisdom of his body, has taken time to reflect on lessons learned, and has let this chapter in his life be lived with intention and meaning, even if that means slowing down this active pace. He appreciates his 27 year loving relationship with his partner, Renee, grateful that she has been with him in the canoe on this life journey. Enjoy the podcast!Read more »
