Experience working in diverse settings in partnership with key stakeholders, public and private funders, foundations, federal agencies, trade associations and academia to improve primary care programing as well as scholarship and research. I have led multiple national initiatives to decrease health disparities and address health equity. The lived-experience of working on national projects has highlighted the importance of applying research to inform strategy, listen to key stakeholders, apply evidence-based frameworks, and analyze data to track progress. In addition, we must remain mindful of policies that may either facilitate or create barriers towards achieving health equity. As a keen problem solver, collaborator, researcher, and leader, I have cultivated a valuable social network of trusted colleagues and proud of the positive impact of my work.
