CEO & Senior Provost
Las Vegas

What do you like about your industry?
I am excited to lead an institution that is educating Nevada’s future healthcare and educational professionals. Touro is the state’s best kept secret and I am working to change that.

What was the toughest lesson you’ve learned in your career?
The best lesson I’ve learned is that “when one door closes another opens.” That is what I find so exciting about this opportunity at Touro. I am able to take the experiences I’ve had throughout my career in public and community service and help take the university to the next level – providing high quality education, expanded outreach in the community, and enhanced programs and services that directly benefit the citizens of Nevada.

If you had to choose another profession what would it be?
A Las Vegas lounge act – why not!

What moment would you want to relive over and over again?
The birth of my children.
