How did you get started in your career? My career started in 1998 when I was accepted into a post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Neuropsychology which brought me to Arizona. Following this two year position, I accepted my first “real” job in eating disorders at Remuda Ranch Treatment Programs.

What advice would you give to someone interested in the eating disorders field?
It’s important to get a diverse and broad range of clinical experience and training before specializing too soon in one area in your undergraduate or graduate program. I felt my diverse clinical training and experience prepared me well to work with the co-morbidity and clinical issues present with those suffering from eating disorders. If possible, I also suggest working with a multidisciplinary team. I have learned a tremendous amount about eating disorders from my colleagues from other disciplines.
