Physician, Surgeon, Public University Educator
As a physician who sees homeless, ill, and struggling patients on a daily basis, I believe that these three issues are important in California and our nation:
I was born in Denver, Colorado and graduated from high school in Liberty, Missouri. Since then I have lived most of my life in California. While in California, I have lived in Los Angeles, Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Diego. I am currently Associate Professor at University of California San Diego, where I teach surgery. My husband of 36 years is a radiologist. My older twin son and my daughter-in-law are lawyers and my younger twin son does social research and served in the United States Peace Corps for two years.
In 2012, when I ran for Town Committee, I was on the same election ballot as President Obama and was elected to Town Committee where I served from 2012-2015.
I currently serve as president of the American College of Surgeons San Diego and Imperial County Chapter.
I have worked on countless political campaigns including medical ones and have served on many non profit organization boards. I have knocked on thousands of doors and have made tens of thousands of phone calls to get others elected to political office, I have worked the polls and registered hundreds to vote.
I hope you can join me for my campaign.
