Educate, Advocate, Innovate
I spend numerous hours lecturing to medical students across the country, giving orthopaedic surgery clinical lectures, career counseling, professional development, and business of medicine lectures. My academic interests lie in medical education, specifically pertaining to musculoskeletal medicine curriculum development, revision and implementation, and women in medicine.
My ultimate mission is to teach, facilitate, and empower students to reach their maximum potential in becoming medical professionals. This mission is fulfilled through teaching and mentoring students, residents, and young physicians alike. Since 2002, I have served as the national Chair of the “Share Your Umbrella” mentoring program, a committee of the J. Robert Gladden Orthopaedic Society in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery. In addition, I serve on the board of directors of the J. Robert Gladden Society as well as on the board of directors of the Women’s Health Issues Advisory Board of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery.
