I am a board-certified physician, specializing in family medicine. My professional interests include women's health, adolescent health and family systems.
Hometown: Harrington Park, NJ
I became a physician because: I spent years as a nursing aide and EMT before going to medical school. I have always loved the people side of medicine.
Something I have learned from my patients is: to listen to each person's story as their "truth" which shapes their view about their own health.
I am passionate about: my family. I also have a passion for social justice causes and for the role of arts in our society.
If I wasn't a physician, I would be a: photographer or craftsperson. I love visual arts and seeing the colors of the world through various media. Getting lost in the creative process, whether with cameras, paper, paint or yarn is my therapy!
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is: helping patients identify and overcome some of the personal and emotional barriers that keep them from achieving their desired outcomes.
