Personal profile

Research Interests

I joined the Child Abuse Division at Lurie Children’s Hospital in December 2016. I completed residency training in pediatrics at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte NC, and remained there as Chief Pediatric Resident. I then completed fellowship training in Child Abuse Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, where I developed a particular interest in the health of children in foster care. Since joining the faculty at Lurie Children’s, I have developed projects focused on clinical quality improvement and understanding the experiences of marginalized youth within foster care, including the LGBTQ population. In July 2018, I became Fellowship Program Director for the Division of Child Abuse Pediatrics, and have initiated programs aimed at recognizing and enhancing fellow, faculty and staff wellness within our division.
