About Me

I treat all rheumatic diseases with a special interest and expertise in the management of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and antiphospholipid syndrome (APLS). I also have a focus in the area of adolescent and young adult health and am always eager to work with patients in this age group as they develop skills for independently managing their health and navigate the process of transferring from pediatric to adult rheumatology care. Having completed both adult and pediatric rheumatology fellowships, I am fortunate to be able to work with young adult rheumatology patients throughout their transition process.

My Research Interests

My research pertains to determining how B cell dysfunction leads to lupus, examining transition outcomes in adolescent and young adults with rheumatic diseases, and evaluating the efficiency of curricula aimed at teaching residents and fellows how to help adolescents and young adults transition from pediatric care to adult care.
