About Me

I am board certified in Geriatrics and Internal Medicine and am passionate about innovative care models and technology to facilitate care and transitions for older adults. I have served as medical director of the Acute Care for Elders Unit for three years, and also help the Geriatrics Consult service in the inpatient setting. I follow primary care patients through the house call program at a local retirement community and have worked in the post-acute and long-term care setting. I am currently co-director of the fourth-year medical student Geriatrics-Palliative Care clerkship and love the opportunity to share geriatrics knowledge with our future physicians. I am the PI for a qualitative review study of geriatrician and older adults’ experiences with telehealth services, and am very interested in future telehealth in geriatrics. I also serve as the study physician for both the Improvisational Movement for People with Early-Stage Memory Loss and Their Caregivers (IMOVE), and the Female, Estrogen, Menopause, Mind and Energy (FEMME) studies. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my son and daughter and practicing the culinary arts.
