I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine (now KUMBC), in 2003. After completing my Transitional Osteopathic Internship in Darby, PA, I completed an anesthesia residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. I then completed a pediatric anesthesia fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles in 2009 and remained on staff for two years as an Assistant Professor.
In 2011, I relocated to Sonoma County, CA, to help my son heal from autism. Taking on several leadership roles, I worked with many surgery centers and offices to ensure the safety of anesthesia provided for both adults and children. I received a third board certification in Integrative Medicine and, as a MAPS provider, opened up a private practice in Sonoma Country treating children with developmental issues and chronic medical conditions such as autism and PANDAS. I am currently undergoing a 5 year Anthroposophical Medical training program in pursuit of a certification in this field. As well, I am a student of Dr. James Jealous, the leader in Pediatric Biodynamic Osteopathy education for physicians.
In the past few months, my family and I moved to rural Oregon, where I continue to remotely follow patients from my Sonoma County private practice, write, and work with healing movement work in children. On a limited basis, I provide anesthesia at various locations and sees patients at both Tru Health Medicine and Gordon Medical Associates in Sonoma County. In the fall, I will be offering my services at Pacific Frontier Medical in Foster City, CA.
