Clinical and Research Background

My professional focus is autopsy pathology and the associated patient care activities that take place after death. I am board certified in anatomic, clinical and forensic pathology, with additional training in pediatric pathology. The first portion of my professional career was spent as a forensic pathologist at the King County Medical Examiner’s Office in Seattle, and I am now the Director of Autopsy and After-Death Services for the two main UW-Medicine hospitals, University of Washington Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center. My professional efforts include diagnostic pathology (adult and perinatal-fetal autopsy and placental pathology), program development and administration, education, and collaborative research.
