She and her husband Allan Stewart, a major heart surgeon who was part of the team that operated on Bill Clinton, moved to Miami last week. Turns out Stewart just landed the gig as Chief of Cardiac Surgery at Baptist Health South Florida and Surgical Director of Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute.
