(A) Educational Philosophy:
She believes in student centered philosophy of education based on their educational needs to hone
their critical thinking and analytical skills. The best way to accomplish this is through small group or
one-to-one teaching, particularly in a clinically relevant setting. She also believes that it is important
to ask them to look for a few answers on their own rather than being told, because it helps
them to find information in a variety of ways and expand their knowledge in the area.
