VP Education

Medical education is constantly being modified to reflect the dynamic nature of healthcare, literature, technological advancements and the needs of the students. As VP Education, I communicate student concerns and opinions with respect to medical education and curricular changes to the faculty. Part of my advocacy work includes representing the student body in curriculum committees including MD Program Curriculum Committee, Hospital University Education Committee, and Student Assessment and Standards Committee (SASC). I also co-chair the Student Education Committee (SEC) to ensure collaboration amongst different student representatives. Additionally, I co-lead educational programs like the MD Longitudinal Academic Mentorship Program (LAMP) and Career Chats with the Office of Health Professions Student Affairs (OHPSA) to assist students in their educational journey. Lastly, I support students in curriculum development projects and ensure that their ideas put forth do not go unnoticed.

About Me

I grew up playing the violin and being involved with sports – I then discovered I could combine my passion for music and movement, and fell in love with dance! Becoming a dance coach sparked my interest in teaching and education, which I was able to explore beyond the studio. Aside from that, I love cooking, cat sitting, and most of all, spending time with my loved ones.

About Me

Cozy Sunday morning movies. Warm late afternoon summer golf. Singing show-tunes in the car on long road trips. This is who I am outside of my professional persona.

I come from a clinical background as a pharmacist. I am passionate about healthcare, and I am a naturally curious person. I like to get involved in many different initiatives. I believe that the opportunity to have our student voice heard is imperative to continually improving the undergraduate medical curriculum.

Year Plans and Goals

My goals in this role is ensure that all the voices of all the students in the undergraduate medical program are heard and represented in faculty decisions. We have such a unique ability and opportunity to be able to shape the program and continually improve it and I want to make sure this privilege is not squandered.
