For the past 15 years, I have been the Principal Investigator at Gaylord Hospital for the Spaulding New England Regional Spinal Cord Injury Model, and most recently as Co-Director of Enrollment Clinical Care. I am board certified in not only Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, but additionally in Spinal Cord Injury Medicine and Brain Injury Medicine. I have demonstrated the expertise and enthusiasm necessary for fulfilling Gaylord’s role as part of the Model System. My previous extensive background in spinal cord injury treatment and rehabilitation has led me to work on various topics related to promote the health of people with disabilities and prevention of secondary conditions. I led the initiative on NESCIT, the New England Spinal Cord Injury Toolkit, which was developed collaboratively with many other centers and clinicians in New England.
At Gaylord, I serve as the Medical Director of the Milne Institute for Healthcare Innovation, Director of Medical Education, Director of our Spinal Cord Injury Program and as the Research/Site Director of the Model Systems SCI Program.
Contribution to Science
For the past three SCI Model System grant cycles, I have led the NIDILRR funded Model System work at Gaylord Hospital leading the SCIMS national database enrollment, and I have provided oversight for Gaylord for multiple phases of SCI studies, notably site-specific SCI-FI iterations and My Care My Call, and our multi-site collaborations (SCI-FI, SCI-QoL, PROMIS, and EQuATe). Prominently featured in my work is research that includes people with an SCI as active participants in learning to manage their own health. Notably, I led the development of the New England SCI Toolkit. Designed to provide a standard of care with corresponding resources, NESCIT provides users, which include professionals and people new to SCI care with an easy to use resource to learn about common SCI care concerns.
