About Me

Community Psychiatrist leading the sector to innovate and transform healthcare for those most in need and vulnerable─people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, those struggling with mental health and substance use challenges, individuals in poverty, facing eviction or homelessness, and all those marginalized, unemployed and disadvantaged.

Leadership through compassion, humility and bringing one's authentic self to serving others in need.

Promoting social justice action-oriented approaches to increase access to: health and behavioral health supports, services and treatment; safe and dignified affordable/supportive housing settings; education and meaningful employment opportunities as well as ensuring social drivers of inequity like food insecurity, unsafe neighborhoods and lack of transportation are eradicated with intentional and deliberative grass-roots community building and engagement.
