About Me

I’m a physician assistant (PA) who feels quite fortunate to have spent my entire adult life providing health care to people in need.  My mission is to well-prepare students for their future careers so they can make a difference for their patients. Educationally, I completed a one-year clinical fellowship in surgical neurophysiology after earning my undergraduate degree in PA studies from Hahnemann University. I also possess an earned master’s degree in PA studies and a doctorate in health science. I’m board certified as a PA (PA-C) and as a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurophysiologic Monitoring (D.ABNM).
