"My husband and I joined Geisinger as psychiatrists 25 years ago. We wanted a family-friendly place to practice in a multidisciplinary setting. Since then Geisinger has transformed into one of the largest and best rural providers in the country, and we’re only getting stronger. We love what we do and where we do it."

"Before my interview I pessimistically thought, “Great, it’s going to look like Jersey does from I-95.” I was so wrong! It’s a special place full of welcoming people. The countryside is beautiful, and I’m close to major metros for my culture fix!
It’s such an exciting time. We’re expanding addiction medicine services. Resources and support from senior leadership are remarkable. We’ll provide excellent patient care, and work toward making our delivery model a national standard."

Chair, Addiction Medicine
