WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in the care of patients with cardiomyopathies, advanced heart failure, and pulmonary hypertension. I was drawn to this field because of the complexity of diseases and the potential to dramatically improve patients' lives through drug therapy, mechanical heart devices, or heart transplantation. As a transplant cardiologist, I enjoy caring for my patients through different disease stages and challenges and helping them to thrive. Outside of work, I enjoy exercising and spending time with my two sons and husband.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research is focused on better understanding treatment outcomes and defining best medical practices for patients supported by mechanical heart pumps, also known as left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). I am interested in optimizing care for LVAD patients so that they may achieve the best performance with fewer complications.
