I have been honored to returned to UNM as faculty, in October, 2012, after serving as a primary care provider in the Albuquerque community in several clinical settings over the past 20 years. Most recently before returning to UNM, I served in the Indian Health Service (IHS) in Albuquerque. I had the privilege of working with Presbyterian Medical Group for nearly 5 years before returning to the IHS.
Here at UNM, I am involved in teaching medical students as a facilitator for a number of blocks and as the West House Learning Communities mentor. I completed participation in the 2014-2016 Medical Education Scholars cohort. My main scholarly interest relates to nutrition education.
I am board certified in family medicine and am employed by the UNM Division of General Internal Medicine. I care for patients at the UNM Lobo Care clinic which serves UNM Employees and their dependents in an episodic care forum. As such, we provide a hybrid of primary and acute care services as well as preventive and integrative approaches to care.
