I am the Director of the Senior Vice President for Health Sciences (SVPHS) Education Unit. I have had the pleasure of working for the University for over 11 years. During this time, I was an honored recipient of the University Staff Excellence Award. My career began in the Department of Pediatrics Research Enterprise. In this environment, I developed a passion for supporting faculty career development in both research and education missions. Since then, I have implemented and managed many training and development programs, including the VPCAT Research Scholars Program, Leadership Development Seminars, and a variety of initiatives within the Academy for Health Science Educators (AHSE). As the Director of the SVPHS Education Unit, I work closely with the AVP for Health Sciences Education and the Health Sciences Education Executive Committee to elevate, create and support educational efforts across the six health sciences academic units.
