My clinical and research interests focus on understanding and improving the transition from pediatric to adult healthcare for adolescents and emerging adults with diabetes and endocrine conditions. My interest in healthcare transition stems from my unique medical training. My residency training was in Internal Medicine-Pediatrics at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and my fellowship training was a combined pediatric and adult endocrinology fellowship at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. I joined the Pediatric Diabetes and Endocrinology Section at Texas Children's Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine in 2014. I am a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
