My passion is community engagement fostering health awareness and strengthening cultural diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the globe. I have over 35 years of experiences working in healthcare and economic development within the City of Philadelphia supporting senior level faculty and executives. Worked at the Greater Philadelphia Economic Development Corporation, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute, and currently at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. I attended Pierce College and the University of Pennsylvania where I majored in Business Administration. Throughout my 30+ years at UPenn, I have served on the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) Community Advisory Board and the University of Pennsylvania’s Association of Business Administrators.
