What is your background?
Since completing residency training in June 2014, I have been in private practice at my current location in the Health Pathways Building.
During psychiatry residency training, I provided in-patient hospital care at Upstate University Hospital, the VA (Veterans Administration) Hospital and Hutchings Psychiatric Center. I also worked in several clinics or offices, including the Upstate Adult Psychiatry Clinic, the Upstate Child and Adolescent Clinic, the Upstate Addiction and Pain Clinic, the VA Behavioral Health Outpatient Center, the Hutchings Madison Street Clinic, and the James Square Health and Rehabilitation Center. To become an MD, I attended Upstate Medical University for medical school and graduated in 2010.
My background immediately prior to medical school included being a massage therapist for 5 years, during which I learned, experienced and practiced complementary therapies, including Massage, CranioSacral Therapy and Lymph Drainage Therapy. Before that, I worked in business for 18 years in executive management and staff roles, starting initially as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and ending my business career as a CFO (Chief Financial Officer) for two different companies.
