She also holds a dual appointment as a postdoctoral fellow in the National Clinician Scholars Program and the Center for Mental Health at Perelman School of Medicine. Her research focuses on nursing implementation of behavioral health care in community health settings. She is passionate about the nursing workforce, health equity, and improving the quality of care for patients with behavioral health conditions, with specific focus on patients with substance use disorders. She has clinical experience as a Pediatric ICU nurse, where she witnessed the devastation that adverse childhood experiences, health disparities, and lack of access to adequate mental health care can have on children and their families.
