HISTORY OF HEALTH SCIENCES
Thank you for visiting my website
I truly appreciate your time, and I hope you will be in touch.
My professional mission is to improve the sustainability and justness of health care. I was drawn to nursing to help individuals live with dignity and self-determination. I moved into health care leadership in order to do the same for institutions and systems.
Learning about the history of science and medicine has provided me with a deeper understanding of how current conditions came to be — a critical step in changing them. I believe that our workplaces must reflect the values we seek to bring into the world, including personal fulfillment, inclusiveness, and love.
My greatest joy comes in the difficult spots. I learned from years of patient care that resolving seemingly intractable tensions can result in great healing. And the same goes for institutions, leaders, and systems.
