Isabelle Davis joined the TEA Board in 2003. Currently Isabelle is Vice President and the writer and editor of FootSteps and other TEA publications. She worked full time in Public Relations for 15 years at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania, producing multiple publications and serving as a hospital management staff member. A move to Michigan led to work as a freelance writer for another six years. Her EM is secondary to multiple sclerosis, which she, and a number of physicians consulted over many years, assumed was the cause of her EM. She believes she draws on her work experience at an academic medical center, knowledge of public relations, writing skills and life experience to help TEA understand the workings of academic medicine and communicate better with its members and other audiences.
