I have been a faculty member at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio since July 2009 after obtaining a Ph.D. in the Department of Cellular and Structural Biology at this institution. My teaching responsibilities include course directorships in Anatomy I (CSBL 7014), taught in the spring of year one, and Anatomy II (CSBL 8010), taught in the spring of year three, for the Doctorate in Physical Therapy program. I am also co-course director for Dental Gross Anatomy (CSBL 5016) and PA Gross Anatomy (CSBL 5012) taught in the fall semester for the first year dental and physician assistant programs, respectively.

My current interests include anatomy education and the development of innovative techniques for teaching the anatomical sciences. Thus, I serve as a representative on several committees within the Dental School and School of Health Professions that focus on basic science education. During the past 5 years, I have completed several hours of continuing education credits sponsored by the American Dental Education Association (ADEA). I have represented the UT Health Science Center nationally as an active member of the Commission on Change and Innovation in Dental Education, and I recently fulfilled a contract with F.A. Davis publishing for ancilliary materials for a dental hygiene text book. In addition, I am in the process of designing anatomy educational software for use in specific anatomy courses taught at this instituion.
