Undergraduate: University of Pennsylvania

Medical School: Temple University School of Medicine

Residency: Montefiore Medical Center, Bronx, NY

Interests: I enjoy skiing, hiking, traveling, eating and spending time with my family. I also like watching tv, movies and wish I read faster because while I like reading, I am super slow.

Bio: I have lived in NY and San Francisco, but my heart will always be in Philadelphia (more specifically, Montgomery County). I spend a lot of time with my family, we are big on equal times lazing around and packing in the activities. We travel, we eat, we go to sporting events. I completed a Faculty Development fellowship at Montefiore after my residency training and since then have been working in residency education for 12 years. I received additional training in Acupuncture at Harvard's International Program in Structural Acupuncture. My medical passions are residency education, integrative medicine, health disparities and health equity. I am excited to be part of this amazing team of physicians at Einstein Montgomery!
