I help premed (and med) students develop the study skills they need to be successful in med school. Over the last 20 years, I’ve developed evidence-based study strategies to help students handle the pace and volume of med school. These skills help them learn the material for the long term, do well on their exams, and be ready for their clinical work.

I am a master’s prepared educator and began my work in medical education at The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, Texas.
