During my time of more than 10 years in demanding healthcare settings, I have served in nationwide leadership functions as well as at the hands-on ground-level clinician end of healthcare. A focus of my work and expertise is on innovative methods and health information technology, particularly telemedicine, to improve access to care.
I utilize a very distinctive organizational science, implementation science and health services research background to move health organizations forward.
