  • Dr. Ken Westerheide featured in Muirfield Living Magazine

    I grew up in Mt. Vernon, Ohio and came from a large family of 8 children. My father was a physician, so we spent a lot of time in the hospital waiting rooms after school and sport practices doing our homework while waiting for a ride home.

My father and several older siblings went to the University of Dayton, and I visited them fairly often and really enjoyed the atmosphere, so I chose to attend UD and major in pre-medicine studies, ironically, having the same advisor as my father nearly 35 years later!
