I am the Associate Program Director for the Pediatric Residency, the Assistant Director for the Primary Care Clerkship, and a practicing pediatrician at English Road Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. Some of my highlights as an educator include developing and implementing an interprofessional simulation program to train the pediatric code team, teaching community advocacy, mentoring residents and medical students, and developing and directing a 2-day faculty development course for using simulation as a teaching methodology. I obtained my medical degree from SUNY at Buffalo's School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences in 2004 and completed my pediatric residency and chief residency at the University of Rochester in 2008.
My scholarly interests focus on pediatric medical education and faculty development. I am interested in interactive teaching modalities, particularly simulation, the continuum of pediatric medical education from the undergraduate to graduate level and beyond, and faculty development surrounding medical education.
