I am currently the Director of Young Women’s Program, a faculty practice clinic providing obstetric and gynecologic care for at risk adolescents where I also serve as a clinical provider and preceptor. In addition, I provide primary health care to women inmates most with dual diagnoses--mental health and substance use issues--at the San Francisco County Jail #8 Medical Clinic, another faculty practice setting.
My clinical practice over the past decade has been working with immigrant populations in Oakland, California at La Clínica de La Raza, focused on chronic illness, prenatal care, HIV/STI prevention and mental health issues.
