I joined Tufts Medical Center as a member of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine coming from my position of Associate Professor at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY. My medical degree is from Mayo Medical School and I did residency and fellowship at New York Presbyterian Hospital at Columbia University. I am the new Director of Labor and Delivery here at Tufts and will also see patients in Cambridge Hospital and Brockton Hospital.
