My clinical practice setting is at Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, a primary care clinic in Cornelius, OR. I have prescriptive authority through collaborative practice agreements to see patients and manage their medication therapy for chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, asthma, tobacco cessation, and latent tuberculosis infection. Additionally, I coordinate pharmacy involvement in seasonal and migrant farmworker mobile outreach events in the summer. I often have students and residents/fellows on rotation or working with me in clinic. My research is focused on clinical practice management and residency training.
