Title: Medical Director, UC Self-Insured Health Plans
Department/Unit: Health Sciences and Services

When I started working at UCOP: Nov. 1, 2013; I’m brand new.
What I do for UCOP in five words or less: provide medical and public health expertise
Best part about working for OP: The opportunity to work with all the campuses on innovations and strategies to deliver the highest quality, accessible and affordable health care.
Something you don’t know about me: I rode my bike across the country alone in my teens, then was a professional triathlete in my 20s — MANY years ago.
One weird fact about the town I grew up in: Although the tourism industry likes to promote La Jolla, Calif., as meaning “the jewel,” the name was originally created by the Native American population to mean “the hole,” given its low-lying position near the ocean.
If I could have any job in the world (besides the one I have now) I would be: I would travel the world attending music festivals, though I’ve yet to see that position advertised.
