I graduated from Jefferson College of Health Sciences in 2002, and received a Master's in Physician Assistant Studies from University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2007. I am currently enrolled in the Doctor of Health Education program at A.T. Still University, and the focus of my dissertation has been on increasing the oral health curriculum provided to the PA students. I am currently an Assistant Professor for the PA program at Jefferson College of Health Sciences, and I work clinically for the Surgical Critical Care Service at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital.
My interest in oral health began when I attended a meeting of the Virginia Oral Health Coalition and learned of the efforts in place to increase access to oral care in the state. These efforts focused on locating appropriate dental care for patients , educating medical providers to appropriately assess and refer patients for oral disease, and developing collaborative relationships between medical and dental providers, educators, insurances providers, and the government.
