I was born and raised in Romania, where I graduated from medical school.  Immediately after graduation, my husband and I moved to Chicago, IL.  We spent six years there while I completed my residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine.  I joined the faculty at the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2005.  For the first seven years, I practiced at both Froedtert and the Zablocki VA Medical Center.  I became Chief of Medicine at the Zablocki VA Medical Center in 2012and I only see patients there.  I am truly committed to excellent patient centered care.

My family and I love the Midwest.  In our free time we enjoy outdoor activities, running, biking, hiking and also traveling.
