Care Team Navigator
Esther graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Sociology in 2013. During her undergraduate career, Esther volunteered as a research assistant for the Ron Dahl Youth Development lab studying adolescent risk taking behavior and as a crisis hotline counselor for Bay Area Women Against Rape. Before joining the MAC, Esther worked at the San Francisco VA Medical Center as the IRB coordinator for the Center for Imaging of Neurodegenerative Diseases. She was also a study coordinator for the Department of Defense Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative under Dr. Michael Weiner.
At the Memory and Aging Center, Esther is a Care Team Navigator for the Care Ecosystem study. The study aims to learn more about the needs of both patients with dementia and their families, while improving patient care and reducing care costs.
Outside of work, Esther enjoys biking, reading and finding the best coffee and baked goods in the Bay Area.
