Women’s reproductive health and related topics have been a passion of mine for over 30 years. My early professional experiences in clinical settings and my later work in research and evaluation furthered my commitment to women’s health. Through public health and social work, I learned the importance of quality health education in creating an informed, healthy population. My personal life strengthened my patience and the importance of keeping a sense of humor. I live in Boston with my husband, two sons, and our beloved golden retriever. The irony of being the only female in the family is not lost on me (dog excluded).
