About Me

I have worked as an overnight hospitalist and currently serve as an urgent care physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Since joining MSK in 2008, I have worked on numerous initiatives to improve the institutional climate for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) patients, trainees, and staff. As a member of the LGBT Employee Resource Network, I lead institution-wide safe zone trainings that inform staff of on-site and local LGBT resources. I am also chairperson of Weill Cornell Medical College’s LGBT Steering Committee — which coordinates social mixers, mentorship programming, and LGBT-related research — and am on the executive committee for the annual LGBT Health Workforce Conference held in New York City.
