WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in treating mothers who have infectious diseases that might affect their baby during pregnancy or develop infections while pregnant. As a researcher, I conduct clinical trials with the goal of improving pregnancy outcomes. I am trained in obstetrics and gynecology and have done additional training in maternal-fetal medicine. I chose to pursue maternal-fetal medicine because it allows me to focus on treating a complex medical problem for a short period of time, when the patient is still relatively healthy. Most of the medical problems I treat have a positive outcome. Pregnancy is a joyous time for the patient and their family, and I enjoy sharing in that happiness. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our twins. I also enjoy traveling, cooking, running on trails, and watching and playing golf.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research is aimed at improving the lives of mothers and infants. Early in my career, I focused on preterm birth and low birth weight and have published work on screening and prediction of preterm birth, the long-term consequences faced by preterm-birth survivors and how infection and inflammation contribute to prematurity. I also have an interest in maternal immunization during pregnancy. I lead several studies involving licensed flu and Tdap vaccines during pregnancy as well as studies of novel vaccines against group B strep and respiratory syncytial virus.
