    Throughout my training and education, I have taken a special interest in the psychosocial burdens of genetic disease and ways that providers can mitigate these burdens. During medical school, I worked in outreach, executing a series of writing workshops for children and adults affected by genetic diagnoses. Since then, I have moved on to academic investigations of the psychosocial burden of genetic diagnoses. My research has included analysis of the utility of certain patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in osteogenesis imperfecta; assessment of psychosocial functioning in the rare disease TANGO2; and analysis of sequencing data and seeing patients for the Undiagnosed Disease Network.
    My research continues to focus on quality of life in patients and families affected by genetic conditions, and the ways in which clinicians and researchers can measure and improve quality of life. My clinical practice focuses on general pediatric genetics, and I have received specialized training in skeletal dysplasias.
    Outside of medicine, I also write personal essays. I have had essays published in several literary magazines, and my writing informs my desire to hear patients' stories.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
