Susan is currently the Lead Medical Reviewer for Aspire IRB. Susan graduated from the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa in 1988 and joined the Family Medicine Department thereafter, completing her Master’s degree in Family Medicine with a dissertation in Sun Protection of Children. She devoted her career there to a private family medicine practice, consulted to a nursing home and volunteered at community primary healthcare centers. She was an honorary lecturer and was responsible for medical students’ internships and clerkships.
Susan migrated to California in 2005 with her husband and 3 children and proceeded to earn her United States Medical Licensing Exams for foreign graduates. She volunteered at UCSD medical school as a preceptor and completed a Clinical Trials Certificate through UCSD extension. Susan’s comprehensive training equips her for this scientific role and her interest in patients’ health seeking behavior and patient education and advocacy makes her passionate about her work at Aspire, to protect the welfare of human subjects.
Outside of Aspire, Susan is involved with volunteering at her children’s schools and sports clubs and is a past board member of her local synagogue.
