I am an Assistant Professor in Pediatrics at Boston University School of Medicine and an Adolescent Medicine Specialist at Boston Medical Center. I am an expert in the area of adolescent pregnancy and parenting, as well as in primary and secondary cervical cancer prevention. In addition to clinical care, teaching, and research, I am also committed to serve in various committees within the department and the hospital to contribute to better health outcomes for underserved, high-risk, immigrant, low-income, and vulnerable populations.

I am the PI of the teen and tot program and an HPV Merck funded research study. I am the co-PI of … For several years I have continued to supervise MPH, GMS, and BU undergrad students doing their practicum in the Teen and Tot clinic as well as in the HPV research studies. I designed and piloted DREAM, an inter-professional service-learning program at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) for medical students. DREAM was developed in order to bridge gaps in preclinical student knowledge and experience as well as promote optimal patient care in low resource settings. I have experience lecturing students from Boston University School of Medicine monthly about adolescent health issues. I have served as the director of medical education for the medical students, pediatric residents, and adolescent medicine fellows rotating in Adolescent clinic at BMC. I am also currently part of the BU Women’s Leadership Program and have facilitated a group session per year.

As a clinician, colleague, researcher, leader, teacher, and mentor, I pride myself in being extremely patient, caring, and energetic. I love helping people grow in all stages of their careers. I focus on helping growing professionals reach their full potential and achieve their goals. I connect growing professionals with the right resources in order to better guide them and lead them in the right direction.

Overall, I hope to continue to guide, teach, and mentor BU medical, MPH, GMS, and undergraduate students.
