My official job title is Associate Professor of Pediatrics. I am also Program Director of the Pediatric Residency Program at SUNY Upstate. I teach. I take care of patients. I teach others how to take care of patients. I love every last second of it. I am a whiz at resident feedback and evaluation. I dabble in quality improvement education and research and curriculum development. I've also been known to do research about advocacy and systems-based learning. I helped create a protocol for pediatric procedural management in the inpatient setting. My favorite animals at the State Fair are llamas. I run for fun and so I can eat ice cream. I'm a Red Sox fan in Yankee country. My daughter and my husband are the best things in my life.
