She led the Women in Internal Medicine Residency Interest Group and was a member of the GME Women in Medicine Leadership Council, where she developed educational programs to develop leadership, wellness, and community among women trainees and allies, and has now continued the work as a faculty liaison. She then joined the Division of Hospital Medicine as faculty to care for acutely ill adult patients. Outside her clinical work, her area of focus is in medical education, specifically clinical skills, patient-centered communication strategies, and health equity; she received the David A.

She was the recipient of a 2021-2022 Teaching & Mentorship Academy educational innovation grant to develop a digitalized curriculum to teach racial justice in clinical decision-making and promote justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion throughout the continuum of medical training. Her research uses quantitative and qualitative methodologies and participatory qualitative approaches with community partners to understand how to effectively teach racial justice in the clinical learning environment.
