Biography

As Program Coordinator for the Divisions of Rheumatology and Endocrinology, my goal is to ensure that we are not only meeting, but exceeding ACGME requirements. I believe that in order for our program to succeed in fellow education, that open and frequent communication is essential. My background in nursing has helped me understand both the joys and challenges that physicians face on a daily basis. I've been a Wayne State University team member since 2016 and I worked with medical students in the Service Learning office, where I was involved with curriculum development including creating patient-friendly educational materials as well as poster presentations for scientific meetings. Additionally, I serve as Treasurer of the Program Coordinator Council and am actively involved in hospital committees including Resident Wellness, Call-room improvements and the Program Coordinator Task Force. I work hand-in-hand with GME leadership on a daily basis to ensure that our residents/fellows have the best educational experience possible while training here at the DMC!
