During the NYU Substance Abuse Research Education and Training (SARET) program she experienced her first opportunity as a nurse scientist. This inspired her interest in research and paved the way for a leadership role in the Nursing Research and Practice Council and eventually, she transitioned to a clinician role as Nurse Practitioner in Movement Disorders at Weill Cornell Medicine where she is also a co-investigator on multiple clinical trials. Her research interests include how patients learn about and manage chronic illness and work-life balance of caregivers for those with chronic neurological conditions.
