I am one of the Associate Directors of Scientific Foundations of Medicine and I could not be more thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of educators. I also am an infectious disease physician. My interests include clinical reasoning, cognitive biases, social determinants of health, medical humanities and of course, all things microbiology!
I grew up a mall-rat in New Jersey but now officially have been a Californian for most of my life. I am the mother of two little rascals and an aging hound. My husband is a dedicated family physician at Venice Family Clinic and is sometimes mistaken for Ted Lasso. We love hiking the wilds of LA, exploring new states and countries, reading and doing puzzles.
