What are your greatest professional interests?
I am very excited about the focus on equity, for our patients and our learners. The need to meet learners and communities where they are and provide the needed resources to help them get to their goal is wonderful work. I started my career in rural practice and I continue to see one of my greatest successes to be successfully launching a new physician into a rural community. Inter-professional team based care allows us to utilize the best skills we all bring to improve patient heath in a global way. Community based education forces us to look for the patient that has not yet gotten access to care and to see our patients in the totality of their life, not only their disease states.
What are your personal hobbies and interests?
I love to camp, hike, backpack, tandem ride with my husband of 24 years, quilt, and hang with my family. I have a young adult son and a teenage daughter launching to college. They are my greatest joy.
If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about graduate medical education, what would it be?
Remove the funding issues so that we could seek the best education to meet the goals of our learners and the expertise of our educators without putting it through the lens of “how to pay for it”.
