I have been teaching at CCSF since 1997. I have almost 40 years of experience in health education, advocacy, and providing health care services. I started as a community health worker, became an LVN (studied at CCSF -John Adams 1974), went on to become a Physicians Assistant in Primary Care (Stanford-Foothill 1980) and then studied Public Health (MPH - Community Health Education at University of Mass in 1995).

Areas of special interest over the years have been stress reduction, violence prevention, women's health, substance use, HIV prevention, leadership development, gender studies, end of life issues, yoga, meditation and other restorative practice and above all promoting health equity for everyone.

I love teaching at CCSF because I believe strongly in a public open door - open enrollment institution that serves community interests. CCSF is where it all started for me and I remain truly inspired by my creative, enthusiastic, and intelligent students and the talented, dedicated, and compassionate faculty and staff I work with. My classes are interactive with a combination of individual, group, and online learning activities, discussion, video, and lecture.
