Biography

Pebble discovered medicine mid-life. After a successful and enjoyable 10-year career in theater performance and arts administration in the Baltimore and Washington area, she ran off and joined the medical circus. She completed post-baccalaureate studies at Goucher College in 2003 and returned to her undergraduate alma mater, Brown University, for medical school. During medical school, she was thrilled to discover family medicine as she is most interested in caring for whole people, families, and communities. University of Rochester's family medicine department was a perfect fit for residency with its excellent psychosocial/behavioral health curriculum and collaborative practice environment. After serving as chief resident, she joined the faculty in 2011 with a focus on teaching in the psychosocial medicine curriculum. She has pursued additional training in sexual medicine through the European Society of Sexual Medicine and the American Association of Sexuality Counselors Educators and Therapists. Sexual medicine, simply put, covers the sexual aspects of medical issues and the medical aspects of sexual issues. In addition to clinical work in sexual medicine she teaches family medicine residents and medical students about sexual issues in healthcare.
