I will contribute to the FIC mission by engaging in both clinical work and research focusing on improving global life quality through surgical and medical treatment of obesity. With a strong background in health psychology, I highly value being part of a multidisciplinary team approach in treating obesity and believe optimal patient care necessit ates a focus on numerous aspects of health behavior, including nutrition, stress management, and exercise. I value the importance of research in improving patient care and am dedicated to scholarly activity with goals of answering clinically-relevant questions and guiding best practices within the field of obesity treatment.
