Personal

Dr. Livezey moved to Atlanta in 1988 from Michigan to join Allergy and Asthma Consultants, finding a life-long career. His wife, Rebecca, is a research psychologist at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). They have three sometimes-charming, occasionally-challenging children, who have recently left them empty-nested, but, within months they were blessed with a timely grandson. For Dr. Livezey, music, golf, and travel are frequent diversions- none of them mastered, but very much enjoyed.
