My teaching philosophy emphasizes a core set of knowledge and skills deemed essential for healthcare students. Using those core sets, I promote personal responsibility to make rational choices while providing healthcare. I encourage students to explore their life purpose, values, and meaning to ensure they always keep patient experience at the forefront. I also aim to develop disciplined individuals through a structured curriculum that become practical and vital health team members.
I have had a role in the medical field in one way or another since 2002. I have been an Army Medic, EMT, Phlebotomy Technician, Medical Assistant, and Clinical Lead throughout my career. Through my experience in the medical field, I realized how important the foundation education of healthcare workers is. That is why I decided to become a full-time healthcare educator in 2021.
