I am Associate Professor at UCSF with appointments in the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science and the Department of Anatomy. I have been a licensed physical therapist since 1983, have a Doctorate in Physical Therapy Science (2009) and Masters of Advanced Studies in Clinical Research (2015) from UCSF. My research encompasses two related areas: 1) The effects of breast cancer treatment on physical function and 2) the assessment of and predictors for development of breast cancer-related lymphedema.

I teach gross anatomy to physical therapy doctoral students and 1st and 2nd year medical students at UCSF.
