University of Minnesota Medical School
Department of Family Medicine and Community Health
I graduated from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and then completed my residency in family medicine and a two-year academic fellowship at the University of Missouri-Columbia program. Twenty five years ago, after volunteering for 3 months in Pohnpei, Micronesia with my family physician husband, I joined the family medicine department of the University of Minnesota. I thoroughly enjoyed my 10 years as Program Director of the University Residency (Smiley's Clinic) and then transitioned to Department Vice Chair of Clinical Affairs 3 years ago. My passion has been teaching and publishing on patient centered communication, team care and women's health. In my Vice Chair role, I have focused on improving resident-patient continuity and clinician joy of practice through implementing our Clinic as Curriculum Project. During the pandemic, I participated in Command Center work and was intimately involved in implementing and studying remote COVID-19 patient monitoring.
