My professional interests include medical education, simulation, women in medicine, and social media in medical education.

I began my involvement with AWAEM during residency, and continued and advanced my involvement during fellowship and my first few years of academic practice. I believe in the importance of AWAEM as I expressed during my 10 year anniversary podcast interview, especially for junior faculty, residents, and medical students. During my time as VP of Membership, I hope to focus on increasing our membership and involvement through the recruitment of junior faculty, residents, and medical students.
