In addition to various institutional committees, I am a member of multiple American Heart Association Committees including the Leadership Council for the Cardiovascular Disease in the Young (CVDY), Past Chair of the CVDY Early Career and Mentoring Committee and the CVDY representative to the Women in Cardiology Committee. I am a member of the Medical Advisory Board for the Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation.

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
My clinical interests include the care of children with cardiomyopathy, heart failure and those children who need or have had a heart transplant.

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 performing investigations utilizing human tissue, primary and stem cell models as well as various animal models to investigate mechanisms specific to the failing pediatric heart. We also are interested in identifying biomarkers of disease, especially circulating microRNAs, as they relate to risk stratification for children with heart disease. 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.
