Associate Professor, College of Osteopathic Medicine


I am an Associate Professor in the Primary Care Department of Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine. I am native of Chicago, and completed medical school at the University of Iowa, Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine and completed an Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at the University of Michigan. I am a passionate advocate for the health of all women particularly women with reduced access to medical care. I have served as Chairman of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2 large urban medical centers, and Program Director for 2 Obstetrics and Gynecology residency programs. My experience with the underserved populations of the world inspired her to complete a Master of Public Health from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health. During my east coast experience, I was appointed Associate Commissioner of Health with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, my tenure included direct involvement with the September 11th World Trade Center disaster. I joined the Aurora University of Wisconsin Medical Group faculty as Program Director of the Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program and Director of Medical Operations. My interest in population health and health policy led me to serve as Medical Director for Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield’s Wisconsin Medicaid division. When my husband was offered an opportunity to relocate from the Midwest to California, I happily accepted the challenge. In addition to my academic duties with Touro, I am actively involved with improving health services for populations that receive care from Federally Qualified Health Clinics in Vallejo California. I am happily married, has 3 children, and is the proud ‘Grandma’ of 6. My interests include, Maternal/Infant Mortality, Pediatric Gynecology, Contraception, Physician bias in health care, quality outcomes, community service, cooking, reading and travel. My motto is: ‘If Mama is healthy…the family is healthy’.
