What I do

I serve as the PharmD didactic education manager at the UCSF School of Pharmacy in the Office of Education and Instructional Services (OEIS). I participate in the curriculum transformation process and the implementation of the PharmD curriculum for 2018 and beyond, and I am responsible for providing and managing the support for the curriculum build and rollout. Leveraging educational technology platforms to meet the needs of the evolving learning environment for both the teaching faculty and students is primarily the focus of the didactic team.

I have worked at UCSF in health professions education in many settings—pharmacy education, graduate medical education, surgery education, dental education—gaining an in-depth view of the educational infrastructure. I have centralized educational technology usage providing programmatic oversight. My focus has been on program improvement and leveraging systems for data management solutions. My interest in teaching and learning has been focused on empowering staff and student learners to have a better learning experience.

I have a bachelor’s degree in accounting and economics and a post-graduate diploma in business administration. I have also studied information design and am a lifelong learner of technology and innovations.
