Academic Profile

I graduated as a Physician Assistant in 2012 and spent my clinical career working mostly in Family Medicine, largely serving under-resourced and underserved communities. Over my clinical career, I developed considerable expertise in the health management of undocumented migrants, in psychiatry for the primary care setting, substance use disorder treatment, and HIV care.

I began teaching in 2019 at St Elizabeth University’s PA program as both a guest lecturer and then as an Adjunct Professor. I began my new role as full-time faculty for FDU’s PA program in January 2024.
