As a member of the Office of Education and Instructional Support (OEIS), I coordinate the logistics for the pharmaceutical chemistry (PC), pharmacology (PCOL), and clinical pharmacy (CP) courses in the PharmD curriculum, including exams, educational technology, and active learning activities. I work closely with UCSF PharmD students and faculty to make sure all administrative aspects of the course run smoothly and am a resource on education-related questions for pharmacy students and faculty. My other interests include instructional design and multimedia-focused projects to enhance teaching and learning.

The photograph of Martin Luther King Jr. hanging on the wall of the Asthma Collaboratory lab in UC San Francisco’s Rock Hall serves a reminder to all who toil there, purifying DNA samples or analyzing genetic, social or environmental data that their research is also part of a dream of equality and scientific excellence.
