For over 17 years, I’ve practiced in Clinical Neuroscience with a special interest in multiple sclerosis, neuroimmune disorders and neuroimaging techniques. I see every patient visit as an opportunity to partner with patients and their families as I believe in shared decision making and patient education. A well informed patient is an empowered patient. I have been involved with teaching PA students for many years. I currently serve as the Diagnostic Imaging Department Editor for the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and am involved with the Association of Neurology Physician Assistants and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers. As a native of Massachusetts, I’m a life-long Boston Red Sox fan and enjoy spending time with my family in the Triangle area of North Carolina.
