Undergraduate Medication Education
My Role with Students and Residents at Long School of Medicine
I work with and teach students and residents in the trauma bay, the operating room, and on rounds in the surgical intensive care unit and have served as a clinical preceptor for MSI and MSII students. I also teach several lectures to the MSII and MSIV students. Additionally, I also enjoy mentoring students and residents in research.
Three Fun Facts About Me
1. I am a native Virginian but became a Texas transplant when I enrolled as a first year medical student at UT Health San Antonio LSOM and have been in San Antonio ever since.
2. I love nature and the outdoors- whether I am trail running, hiking, backcountry backpacking, or camping and observing birds, reptiles and insects with my 2 kids. I hiked my first solo backpacking trip in Yellowstone in bear country this summer and just took up rock climbing and bouldering this past year. I have also backpacked in numerous national and state parks, the backcountry of Alaska, the Inca Trail and in Patagonia in Torres del Paine, Chile.
3. In addition to my surgical left brain, I have a healthy and active right brain that likes to run wild with painting, reading and poetry when I let it.
