I started my career as a social worker (Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW) over 20 years ago and have since worked in India, New York, Chicago and Cincinnati, and since 2016 in California. However, more importantly these experiences have been in varied clinical settings while using various research and quality improvement tools. My experience has included direct medical case management; psychiatric counseling for individuals, couples, families; group work with obese adolescent patients, mental health patients; adherence coaching; adherence research; motivational interviewing; quality improvement projects; self-management initiative for adolescents with poorly controlled asthma and learning tools of design thinking and innovation
