Experience

Biography

As a full scope women's health care doctor including being an abortion provider, mother of a toddler and triathlete, you can guarantee that I have endurance, tenacity and discipline. Besides acting as the medical director of St. James Infirmary, an occupational health and safety clinic for sex workers and their families, I serve on the City's Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force. I also serve on the board of directors of the California Family Health Council, the San Francisco Medical Society’s delegation to the California Medical Association, and as Secretary to the Lower Haight Merchant and Neighborhood Association. All of these experiences have helped me realize my desire to influence change and advocate for my community on a larger level by running for public office. I am also in the current Emerge California 2016 class and understand the importance of getting more women at the decision making table.
