About

Bio

This native of Detroit, Michigan, following completion of medicine residency spent 3 years in the National Health Service Corps serving at a community clinic in Oakland California. After leaving the NHSC she worked for the University of Hawaii Hyperbaric Treatment Center initially in a fellowship capacity and then as Chief Medical Officer. The Hyperbaric center treated SCUBA divers with the bends for the entire state of Hawaii. An occasional patient with a diabetic foot wound that needed HBO led to an interest in wound care. This interest led to joining the University of Texas Houston faculty as an assistant professor in their comprehensive wound care and hyperbaric medicine center, and subsequently to Restorix Health as their Northwest medical director.

I thought it would be scary being in a hyperbaric chamber. It wasn't. The clear walls, movies, oxygen made me so relaxed I was disappointed when the treatment session was over.
