As a dual certified Family Practice and Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, I have had the pleasure of providing care for patients in both specialty and primary care settings. I started teaching as an adjunct faculty in 2006. After discovering teaching was a passion, I increased my teaching work load while continuing to maintain a clinical practice and build my skills as an emotional brain trainer. I am looking forward to expanding services offered in the Simulation Center, teaching new courses and continuing to maintain a clinical practice. As a recent transplant to southern California, I am planning on taking advantage of the year round opportunities to continue to swim and bike as well as exploring all options available with regards to integrative medicine.
