Bio

I am a board-certified occupational and environmental medicine physician and have been with the UC Davis Medical Surveillance Program for 9 years.  I completed residency training in Occupational and Environmental Medicine and a Master of Science degree in Public Health Science and Policy at UC Irvine, and received my M.D. from Tulane University School of Medicine.  As the UC Davis Medical Surveillance Program’s associate director, I work with employers to identify potential workplace health hazards and design medical programs to help keep workers safe.  I also review each patient’s chart and determine each clearance status.
One of the best parts of my work is having in-depth conversations with patients.  I often call patients with questions related to their testing and then we go on to have bigger conversations about health and wellness.  I currently serve as a director on the board for the Western Occupational and Environmental Medical Association (WOEMA), and am active in planning educational content for both WOEMA and UC Davis medical providers.  I’m passionate about fitness and enjoy hiking, yoga, and running.
