  • I arrived in Austin in 2002, to a fledgling hematology program. I have gained much experience in management, business planning, human resources, clinical medicine, electronic healthcare and ethics.
    I have served the clinical medicine efforts now for these last 19 years in Austin. There are other efforts in a related discipline that I will be exploring for these next 5-10 years of employment.
