What was your background before coming to IFM?
I went to graduate school in neuroscience at UCLA, and I also have an M.S. In technical communication from the University of Washington. Professionally, I taught Anatomy and Physiology at North Seattle College and was a medical writer for a health information website.

How would members of the IFM community know you?
I write and/or edit all communications that contain medical content (Connections, The Movement, program emails, IFM website). I also oversee the design and build or our eLearning courses, such as Introduction to Functional Nutrition: Clinical Solutions for Addressing the Underlying Causes of Disease.

What would the IFM community be surprised to learn about you?
People may be surprised to know that I am huge beer connoisseur (some would say “geek" or “snob”). I also love baseball, especially the Seattle Mariners. As counterpoints to those items, I can also sew (much better than my wife) and I am happiest when I am spending time with my kids.
