What Brought Me To EBT
I was interested in why we do what we do, the forces that drive us. Both my parents had significant health issues and the desire to help and heal started early. I always wanted to be like "Johnny Appleseed" and my earliest memories were of reading the Story of Ruth.
My Professional History
My work at UCSF has been the centerpiece of my career, giving me a chance to work with world renowned scientists and learning so much from them. First in adolescent medicine, then family medicine and now in collaboration with Igor Mitrovic, neurophysiology. I have three work dreams that I want to have come true: Showing that people can use simple skills in loving community and reverse the age-related decline in emotional set point (a neuroscience-based human potential movement), seeing these tools become part of tech-based, remote and loving community so they are accessible and affordable to all, and somehow, somewhere coming full circle and bringing the tools to children, teens (including high risk youth) and families. We have much to do, and if you are a participant, researcher or clinician, please know we need you. It's all about community! Thanks for being part of EBT.
