I joined the team at HEP in 2020 as the volunteer medical director. Since that time, I have been impressed by the organization-wide commitment to offer free and low-barrier medical services alongside case management, advocacy, and outreach. I have been fortunate to work within harm reduction since I was a nursing student at Columbia University, when I volunteered with Washington Heights CORNER Project to help develop a support group for women who use drugs and engage in sex work. While my career as an ARNP has carried me into varied and wide-ranging roles, my commitment to harm reduction has remained strong. In addition to the newly expanded medical director role at HEP, I also work in inpatient palliative care. Prior to this role, I practiced at Providence ElderPlace, a program that provides comprehensive and all-inclusive primary care to older adults. I have also practiced in Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and as adjunct DNP faculty with Seattle Pacific University. Recently, I completed a certificate in acupuncture for ARNPs. Apart from work, I enjoy growing flowers, cooking, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
