I am a pharmacist, educator, and researcher with formal training in geriatrics and extensive experience in global public health. My clinical, teaching, and research interests include Parkinson disease, urinary incontinence, and medication-related problems. I collaborate with faculty from the VCU College of Health Professions Department of Gerontology (https://gerontology.chp.vcu.edu/) to supervise students in the PharmD/Certificate of Aging Studies Combined Degree Program. I also work extensively with the VCU Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Care (https://ipe.vcu.edu/) on interprofessional teaching endeavors related to geriatrics and global public health.
