    Through work, I’ve become fluent in Spanish and, through study, conversant in Portuguese. I have enjoyed participating in international public health and medical work over the years. I currently live in Worcester with my husband and daughter.

    Current Positions

    I hold joint appointments as faculty of the UMass-Worcester Family Medicine Residency and as Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health. Most of my teaching is in the clinical settings of Hahnemann Family Health Center or my own clinical practice at Plumley Village Health Services.


    2000 - 2003 Family Practice Residency, Univ. of Massachusetts, Worcester MA

    2002 - 2004 Teaching of Tomorrow series, UMass Community Faculty Development Center

    1996 - 2000 Doctor of Medicine, Univ. of Massachusetts, Worcester MA

    1991 - 1995 Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies, Brown University, Providence RI


    My clinical practice is exclusively at Plumley Village Health Services, a satellite clinic located within the Plumley Village housing project in downtown Worcester. The clinic was founded to help bring appropriate, accessible care to this largely low income and Spanish-speaking population. I enjoy the large volume of pediatric and women’s health care that we provide. Current projects involve issues such as assisting with prescription drug access for uninsured patients, and ensuring that female patients are provided routine screening regardless of ability to pay. The clinic is affiliated with Hahnemann Family Health Center, one of the UMass-Worcester Family Medicine Residency training sites.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
