I currently serve as the Associate Division Chief of Academic General Pediatrics and the Fellowship Director for the Academic General Pediatrics fellowship. My research focuses in understanding the impact of psychosocial adversity on health as well as innovative interventions for trauma delivered in the primary care setting. In my administrative and research roles, I have mentored >20 junior faculty, fellows, residents and medical students. I greatly enjoy mentoring and helping mentees establish and achieve goals both professionally and personally.
