Board Secretary

As a pediatric endocrinologist, I focused on the education and care for patients and families learning to manage diabetes. My clinical research focused on insulin pump therapy and the development of closed loop insulin delivery. I have also worked in a laboratory setting with mouse models of lactation and breast cancer. Like my colleagues, I share a life-long love of music that was kindled growing up in a musical home, which led to singing in a college a cappella group. My connection with NMS began seven years ago when my eldest son started taking violin here. I now have three children taking four different instruments, from private lessons to string ensembles. As a member of the Parent Engagement Committee I’ve been working on fostering a more integrated sense of community between all our diverse members and faculty. I see first-hand the incredible benefit NMS can provide for students, parents, and our city as a whole, and I am delighted to have this additional opportunity to serve our institution.
