My Biography & Research


I am a pediatric cardiologist who practices general pediatric cardiology. I also perform noninvasive electrophysiology, which includes tests such as electrocardiograms, treadmill exercise tests and event monitors.

I was inspired to pursue my career by my mother, who is a nurse practitioner. I love taking care of children and working with parents.

I helped establish the Syncope Clinic at Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute and serve as its current director. I also helped develop the Safety, Quality, Value program within the Heart Institute, which plays a supporting role in furthering the Heart Institute’s leadership in clinical outcomes, experience, and value for patients and families.

In my research, I am studying ways to increase high-value care for pediatric patients, quality improvement and population health. My master’s degree in public health led me to this research area.
