5 Questions with Kelsey Miyoshi

5 Questions with Kelsey Miyoshi

Kelsey is our Senior Financial Analyst at SCCA Proton Therapy Center. He spends a lot of time in front of the computer, but that's not all he enjoys! Find out more about Kelsey by reading his answers to our 5 Questions!

How did you get started in your career?

During the first couple of years in college I didn’t really know what major I wanted to pursue, so I tried a lot of different courses and finally found that I was interested in economics. After that course, I decided to pursue a degree in business and really found finance and investments interesting. Unfortunately (or fortunately – depending on how you look at it), during my first quarter for investments courses, all of the professors were on sabbatical! So I decided to pursue a corporate finance track instead. And I am glad that happened, because if it hadn't been for that, I may not be in the position that I am in now.

What’s the most fun you’ve had at the center?

Going to my first patient graduation was really fun. It was so inspiring to be able to meet some of the patients who've gone through treatment here. Also neat, about this graduation in particular, was that one of the graduates played the bagpipes!

What are your hobbies?

As a kid, I raced radio-controlled cars at local track around my hometown, and about a year ago, I decided that I needed a new hobby and decided to give it a try once again. As a kid, what I liked was that I was able to work on these cars with my dad and have something to do when I got home from school. In addition, I like to bike and hike and plan on starting to backpack this summer.

Tell us something surprising about you.

Although I have had the opportunity to travel around the country on road trips and vacations, it wasn’t until last year that I finally made it outside of North America. My wife and I went to Argentina last April for our honeymoon and we are planning a trip to Morocco for later this year. Some people think that these are fairly obscure locations to visit, but I tend to pick vacation spots based on whether I like the cuisine! I don’t think I could enjoy a destination too much if I dreaded the meals every single day.

Whom do you look up to, and why?

I look up to my wife because she is a very empathetic person and can put herself in other people’s situations very easily. She used to work as a social worker in case management and was very good at understanding people and their situations.
