About Me

Born in Tacoma Washington, and grew up in San Jose California, and lived in Los Angeles during graduate and postdoctoral education.  I worked briefly as an Emergency Medical Technician in San Jose.  I worked for 12 years in the Cardiac Pathology Division, Department of Pathology, Stanford University School of Medicine.  I started teaching anatomy for the California College of Podiatric Medicine in 1989, when the campus was in San Francisco.  I left in 2001, and returned in 2005 to the California School of Podiatric Medicine at Samuel Merritt University.
