Program Administrator, 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 such as Radiology, System Administrator, Cardiology, Executive Administrative Assistant, GIM Division, Sr. Administrative Coordinator, and most recently Palliative Care, Program Administrator responsible for the Palliative Care Program which allows me to collaborate with administration, trainees, faculty, and staff. I am passionate about supporting my teams efficiently so they may continue to provide the best patient care.

I am a mother, daughter, sister, and aunt, and am very family oriented. I have two children who make me laugh all the time. I love cooking and eating Italian food and pairing with good wine. Trips to the beach and pizza movie nights are also on my list of favorites.
