Professional Background

I have worked as a medical social worker/clinician for 10 years doing home visits, hospice care and hospital work. I have worked with patients of all ages with a wide variety of complex medical and psychosocial concerns. End of life care, palliative and chronic care are areas in which I have dedicated my work to those who are the most vulnerable in the healthcare system. Additionally, I have a special interest and commitment to healthcare related employee wellness and supporting our providers so they can provide the best care for their patients.
