What are your greatest professional interests?

I truly enjoy the longitudinal care we practice in Family Medicine. My first love is maternal-child health, delivering moms and then watching the family grow. Similar to the longitudinal relationship with my patients, I enjoy seeing the growth of residents during their short time of residency, forming relationships with them, and guiding them to become awesome Family Medicine physicians. I have also become more interested in the mentorship aspect of what we do as educators during my career, believing that mentorship is a powerful key to the successful growth of a person.

What are your personal hobbies and interests?

I enjoy being outside in the sunshine, running, traveling, Disney trips with my family (husband, son and daughter), and enjoying good barbeque. I’m also the troop leader for my daughter’s Girl Scout troop, so herding elementary kids is apparently fun for me.

If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about graduate medical education, what would it be?

Like my fellow board members, remove funding as one of the primary roadblocks to effective education GME. I would also change the focus of institutions to making primary care specialties in GME a priority.
