Palliative Care
Sr. Administrative Coordinator, Palliative Care

Working in the GIM division is very rewarding. I most enjoy being a part of a team that is respectful, innovative, and inclusive. I encounter this attitude throughout the division. The interprofessional teams allow for better understanding of processes and problem resolution. Our patient-centeredness is the key to our success.


My career at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center began in 1987 as a radiology transcriptionist. Over the years I’ve held positions as Radiology system administrator, cardiology executive administrative assistant, and most recently the GIM Division as Sr. Administrative Coordinator responsible for program coordination for the palliative care program, administrative support for FDP courses in curriculum development and teaching skills which allows me to collaborate with trainees, faculty, and staff. I am passionate about supporting my teams efficiently so they may continue to provide the best patient care.

On the home front, I am the mother of two wonderful teenage boys whom I enjoy watching play ice hockey and video games. I love cooking and eating Italian food and pairing with good wine. I enjoy yoga, trips to the beach, and suspenseful movies.
