My Biography & Research


In my clinical work, I specialize in the care of hospitalized children. This work includes generally healthy children hospitalized for acute illnesses and children with chronic and complex medical conditions who require hospitalization and coordination of subspecialty care.

Working clinically with children and their parents is a joy. I was drawn to pediatrics because I was fascinated by the disease processes that primarily impact children. I enjoy honing the combination of skills required to care for children, such as understanding child growth and development and how those factors bring unique challenges to the job.

My research, supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), focuses on improving the quality, safety and value of the care provided to hospitalized children. There is a lot of waste in the healthcare system in terms of unnecessary spending. These wasteful practices can also lead to additional unnecessary care or even patient harm. My research aims to understand how to implement evidence-based practices and discontinue harmful procedures or practices that don't improve the quality and safety of patient care. In my research, I use quantitative, qualitative and implementation science methods. Through my scholarly work, I also strive to engage individuals who don't typically consider themselves researchers, such as bedside clinicians, patients and families.

I am board certified in pediatrics (2012) and in pediatric hospital medicine (2019).
