Clinical Interest for Patients
My primary clinical interests include caring for children that have or are at risk of developing heart muscle diseases (cardiomyopathy) and those that have had a heart transplant. I also care for children who have varied forms of congenital heart disease and connective tissue disorders (Loeys-Dietz syndrome, Turner's syndrome).

Volunteer Activities
I am a member of the Leadership Council for the Cardiovascular Disease in the Young subcommittee of the American Heart Association. As a member of this organization I participate in efforts to improve awareness of heart disease, advocate for patient rights and have the opportunity to contribute to national guideline development for children with heart disease.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
My research interests include investigation into the molecular level adaptations that occur in the setting of heart failure in children. Specifically in collaboration with colleagues in adult cardiology we are perfoming investigations of the beta-adrenergic system in children in an effort to identify targeted therapy for children suffering from heart failure. I am also active in pediatric heart transplant clinical research. I am interested in outcomes as well as evaluation and management of rejection and transplant coronary artery disease.
