Who I am
I am a scientist and an educator. I love learning fun facts about how things work, and I love sharing that information with other people.
My goal is to empower people to feel good about their bodies and to feel happy about the decisions they make regarding the care of their body. I constantly strive to make your annual (or unexpected) reproductive health visit a more comfortable, relaxed, respectful, and positive experience.
I have a BSN and MSN from the MGH Institute of Health Professions where I specialized in studying Women's Health and Adult Primary Care. I am nationally board certified in both specialties and am a licensed Certified Nurse Practitioner in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Prior to entering health care, I earned a BA in Biology and MA in Education at Clark University. I have over two decades of experience as an educator; both as a high school biology teacher and in informal settings teaching at museums, zoos, and outdoor education programs. I know a little bit about a lot of things - random bits of trivia are my calling card.
My talent is having conversations about intimate or awkward topics in non-awkward ways
