During my career in family medicine I have enjoyed the diversity of work settings available to family physicians. I have worked in private practice and public safety-net family medicine clinics, occupational medicine and college student health. I also spent time as a public health officer working in tuberculosis and sexually transmitted disease control and homeless healthcare. Within all these settings, the broad background of training and the view of the patient as a “whole person” which are the foundations of family medicine always served me well.


I am interested in the research involving issues related to the interface between family medicine and public health. I have worked on research pertaining to health in developing countries having been involved in a large women’s health study in the Gambia, West Africa. I was also involved in research on improved diagnostic methods for pulmonary tuberculosis.


In addition to clinical family medicine practice, I am interested in teaching at the pre-med, medical student and residency level. I have also enjoyed teaching fellow physicians through medical staff lectures. I have served as a travel health consultant for travel agencies and a professional photography school.
