My Areas of Practice
I have had the honor of working with the amazing staff at the International Travel and Infectious Disease Clinic since 2006 and still find it to be a fascinating and stimulating subspecialty. Global health and infectious disease are moving targets so the need for continued learning and research never ends. I jokingly tell my colleagues that I would do this for free because I enjoy it so much. I worked in psychiatric research, public health, HIV prevention and immigrant health before joining Park Nicollet. I love to teach and am passionate about health prevention.
I speak fluent Spanish and conversational French. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua from 1992-1994 and an Americorp fellow in Baltimore from 1996-1997. In August of 2012 I received Ryan White grant funding through MATEC to participate in an HIV scholars program that will be completed in July of 2013. The grant is meant to give intensive training to primary care HIV providers.
I continue to volunteer in the Bloomington schools where my children attend and do occasional flu shot clinics with health care for the homeless.
I look forward to seeing you at the clinic!!
