I am currently the Fellowship and Postdoctoral Administrator in the Department of Pediatrics, Hematology/Oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine. I was recruited to the position in September 2012. Prior to that I was the Pediatric Residency Coordinator for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University and the Graduate Medical Education Coordinator for the Department of OB/GYN and Reproductive Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco.

I am actively engaged in the Association of Pediatric Program Directors (APPD), including an elected position on the Coordinators’ Executive Committee. I’ve collaborated on a number of scholarly activities with fellow APPD colleagues in the area of professional empowerment and advancement of coordinators, program evaluation committees and annual program evaluations, clinical competency committees and milestones, as well as presented a fellow/faculty development workshop on milestones and assessment tools for our division. I continue to seek out opportunities to collaborate, mentor, and take on leadership positions.

Outside of graduate medical education, I am the mother of a very active and curious two year-old, Mason Kai. I also enjoy spending time with my family exploring the Bay Area, hiking, cooking, and enjoying food and wine and the vibrant arts culture. A bioef stint as a pastry cook, I love to cook and bake with my son. Additionally, I continue to be involved in my alma mater, Vassar College, by co-chairing the Vassar Alumnae/i Admissions Program in San Francisco.
