Biography

As a bit of history, I am a physician and have worked in the field of public health and preventive medicine for over 30 years. I obtained my MD from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and my MPH from the University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston. I am board certified in General Preventive Medicine and Public Health and completed my Preventive Medicine/Public Health residency at the University of Michigan. I worked for 24 years as Medical Director of the Texas Children with Special Health Care Needs Services Program at the Texas Department of State Health Services and feel very passionate and committed to quality of care for children and adults with disabilities.

My passions in life are diverse. I enjoy the practice of Kung Fu and Tai Chi and have earned a 4th degree black belt. I have traveled with volunteer service groups to Ghana and Kenya, connecting with and learning from the communities and cultures. I have an artistic side and have published some poetry, a painting, and a short film.

Several years ago, I began working on strategies and curricula to engage children, youth, and adults in the practice of positive ideas and actions for health, green-living, and peace. I believe each of us has the ability to help make the world a better place if we take positive steps to strengthen health, green-living, and peace in our everyday lives. We get stronger in these areas through the power of practice. Whatever we practice will get stronger. The more often we practice, the stronger we become. The daily practice of positive ideas and actions for health, green-living, and peace has power to change lives. Then, together, we change the world! Join me in the OLYMP-I-A Challenge journey! You will come to know me, my passions, my ideas and actions through the OLYMP-I-A Health Challenge, the OLYMP-I-A Green Challenge, and the OLYMP-I-A Peace Challenge e-book series.

Welcome fellow travelers!
