    BIOGRAPHY OF HIMANSHU AGRAWAL

    Dr. Himanshu Agrawal was born in New Delhi, India and spent his childhood living with his family in Bangladesh (ages 1.5-4), London (ages 6-9), Moscow (ages 16-18), and Nepal (ages 24-25). He attended medical school in New Delhi, India (ages 18- 24), and then moved to Minnesota where he completed his residency (ages 25- 29) and child psychiatry fellowship (ages 29-31).

    He then moved to rural Wisconsin (ages 31- 39) to work for a non-profit, where he was the only child psychiatrist in a 50-mile radius. Himanshu moved to Milwaukee, WI (age 39) so that he and his wife could raise their son closer to his wife’s family. He is the first long-distance candidate approved by Minnesota Psychoanalytic Institute and serves as an assistant professor within the department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine at Medical College of Wisconsin. He feels he has won enough fancy awards to invoke Winnicott’s concept of “good enough” and remains embroiled in the task of integrating parts of his insatiable Tiger-Mom mother and his charming Too-cool-for-school Father.

                                                                                    

    BIOGRAPHY OF SARAH THORDSEN

    Dr. Sarah Thordsen was born and raised in a suburb of Milwaukee, WI. She became a world champion horse rider at the age of 16, and often says ‘yes, but what have I accomplished ever since?’ She then graduated precociously from Northwestern, attended medical school at MCW before pursuing a 6-year training to become a cardiologist. Currently she is an associate program director for wellness in the division of cardiology at MCW, and the director of nuclear imaging. She would agree that compared to being Himanshu’s wife and Krishna’s mother (age 5), all these tasks and accomplishments have been a breeze.
