Name: Ignacio “Iggy” Pla.
is your job at MUSC: Project coordinator for ART.
How long at MUSC: 6 months.
Where were your born: Miami,
How did you meet your wife: I
had a motorcycle accident three-and-a-half years ago, and I ended up in
the trauma center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. My wife was a
resident. I had four broken ribs, two broken vertebras, and a broken
femur that now is a titanium rod. She saw me and knew exactly what to
do. If it wasn’t for
her, I would not be alive.
What did you want to be when you were
little: A fighter pilot.
What was your first job: Working
at a concession stand at a youth sports center.
What is the most rewarding aspect of
your job: Seeing the outcome of hard work; coordinating and
working with other contractors to create something.
Bad habit: Smoking cigars.
Something you do that is
silly but really fun: Krispy
Kreme Friday. I bring in two dozen doughnuts; the other employees act
scared about getting fat, but the doughnuts are gone in a flash.
Favorite way to unwind:
Walking my dog, Jesse, or
going for a run.
