Instructor, Principal Faculty
BiographyI am a native Californian.
"Best Day" is any day spent near the ocean.
After graduating from the USC PA program I worked at HealthCare Partners Medical Group, a large multi-specialty group in Los Angeles for 30 + years. At HCP I worked in Clinical Research, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, General surgery (as 1st Assist), High Risk Clinic (Comprehensive Care Center), HCC/ Chart review, Mobile Care team. I joined the SCU faculty in 2017, and have enjoyed the pleasure of working with students from several of the disciplines on campus, the MSPA program, DC and Ayurveda programs. There is a rich culture of support amongst the faculty at SCUHS to foster academic excellence.
One of my life passions is serving as a volunteer on Medical Missions, both domestic and abroad. I am a member of Faithful Central Bible Church where I serve as an usher. I enjoy travelling domestic and abroad, Pilates, reading and outdoor exercise activities. I love learning and sharing with others and I am proud to be a member of the SCUHS academic instructional team. I find Interacting with students, staff and colleagues to be quite a rewarding experience.
