I am a writer, filmmaker, physician and maternal and child public health specialist. My work is founded in knowing that the art and stories that entertain us are vital to our education, health, and the human connectIons underlying justice and peace. AMERICAN RHYTHMS, my feature length documentary film, shines a light on the positive impact of music on child health. My poetry has been presented in journals, gallery exhibits and live story telling events. WHEN YOU BREATHE is my debut picture book about the magic of breathing. I am a clinical assistant professor in the department of medicine at Stanford University. When not writing or doctoring, you can find me in a grove of towering redwood trees, making music with my husband and four children.

@_songelixir, I cover songs and bring attention to issues dear to me, often related to the wellbeing of women and children.
