What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
My time away from Neighborhood Health Center is spent teaching future healthcare professionals as a college professor and working to protect the safety of patients as a member of the New York State Board of Medicine and Commissioner for the body that accredits Physician Assistant Programs. Despite the time that these activities take, I still get to watch almost all of my daughter’s college games (soccer and lacrosse).
Why did you choose to practice at Neighborhood Health Center?
I read about NHC’s mission and history before I applied. I needed to work with professionals who were dedicated and caring. Most importantly, I wanted to care for the patients served by NHC.
What does Growing Health® at Neighborhood Health Center mean to you?
Health is not about illness, Growing Health® means creating circumstances that allow patients to be happy and successful in all aspects of their lives.
What is the most inspiring part of your job?
I am most inspired when a parent trusts me to care for all of their children. That is the ultimate compliment. I never take that for granted.
