What was your background before coming to IFM?

I hold an undergraduate degree in Nutrition Science from Penn State University and was in private clinical practice in Atlanta, Georgia.  I co-founded and co-directed a clinically-oriented massage therapy school, worked as a healthcare program director/full-time assistant professor for a state university, and worked in administrative and instructional capacities at other regional colleges. 

How would members of the IFM community know you?
I help in the planning, production, review, and revision of new and ongoing educational programs for the Medical Education division of IFM. I also provide assistance in a variety of capacities at conferences and other onsite IFM trainings. 

What would the IFM community be surprised to learn about you?
I enjoy writing, and have won a couple of awards for fiction and poetry. Also, when moving from Atlanta to the Seattle area to join IFM, I brought along a horse saddle, horse tack, and a muck rake. Oh, and like Kayla, I too have ridden an elephant.
