"Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity." (Titus 2:7)
I hold MD PhD degree from the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb. I believe that the greatest learning experiences come from working with different group of people as to achieve academic, professional, and spiritual growth. I have been involved in biomedical, translational, and clinical medical science (research), and completed post-doctoral fellowships at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA (1993-1996) and Cleveland Clinic (1999-2002).
Between 1999 and 2011, I was employed at the Cleveland Clinic; first as a post-doctoral fellow at the Cerebrovascular Research Center, Neurosurgery, and upon receiving an AHA grant was promoted to project staff (Research Assistant Professor), working in both bio-medical and translational medical research & clinical trials.
Prior to joining King faculty team in 2014, I have served as Associate Professor and Chair of Health Services Administration Program at Chancellor University, Cleveland, OH. While there, I was instrumental in creating a program in Health Informatics & Information Management (HIIM) at the baccalaureate degree.
As of January 2014, I serve as Lead Faculty and Program Coordinator for Health Informatics at King University. I have been using my skill set to serve our new program and our students.
What are my interests? Professionally, I am passionate about Medical science & research; Education; Program development; Leadership. In my private life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love art and music. I have a wonderful family who has been supportive of my work and education. In return, I enjoy serving and leading others to achieve their full potential.
With self-knowledge comes a greater awareness of who we are, what our true goals in life are, and what direction we want to set for our life. This, in a nutshell, is the gift of maturity. I see myself as a service-oriented professional who thrives on socially meaningful work.
"There are two avenues from the little passions and the drear calamities of earth; both lead to the heaven and away from hell—Art and Science. But art is more godlike than science; science discovers, art creates." — Earl Edward George Bulwer-Lytton
