“I love my job; as an anesthesiologist, my areas of practice are regional anesthesia, OB anesthesia and generalist anesthesia. I am extremely interested in learning and teaching via simulation and I have been on the APOM simulation faculty since I began at OHSU as a staff anesthesiologist in 2005. Along with the rest of the simulation team, I run critical event simulation sessions for all learning levels: from medical students to residents to practicing anesthesiologists. I am also extremely interested in the areas of quality and safety, including examining how we make errors in order to prevent them in the future. I currently serve as APOM’s Chief of Quality and Safety; in this role, I have the opportunity to contribute to increasing the quality of the care received by our patients.”
