I currently have a clinical, teaching, research and administrative role in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics at Stanford Children’s Hospital. I completed my doctoral education in 2014. I am working on publication of my dissertation research; a longitudinal study focused on factors that influence early adaptive behavior trajectories of children born prematurely. I direct a grant funded project that serves children with special needs. Additional leadership roles include serving on the board of the Society of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics and chairing the Developmental Behavioral Mental Health Special Interest Group (DBMH SIG) for the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.
