    I work clinically at the ZSFG Children's Health Center Urgent Care and inpatient ward, where I provide direct patient care as well as supervise the care provided by the UCSF Pediatric and Family Medicine residents. I am the Associate Medical Director of Urgent and Subspecialty Care at the ZSFG Children's Health Center. In this role, I am responsible for day-to-day management of the urgent and subspecialty care clinics, clinic protocol development, faculty development, and quality improvement measures.

    I have served as the Director of the Pediatric Residency Procedure Curriculum since 2013, where I am responsible for the curricular development, coordination, and implementation of the simulation-based procedure curriculum. I was appointed as the Pediatric Residency Site Director at ZSFG in 2016, where I am responsible for ZSFG residency rotation experiences and resident assessment. Finally, I authored the UCSF Pediatric Emergency Medicine Procedures Manual and lead faculty development workshops in procedural education.

    I am very interested in how procedural education can be enhanced through curricula that instruct learners in both cognitive processes (e.g. problem solving, situational awareness) and behavioral steps. I am completing a qualitative research study that examines moments of insight experienced by experts while learning to perform lumbar punctures. I plan to use information garnered through this study to inform curricular innovations both in the simulation lab and at the bedside.

    I am the Co-Founder of the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Health Advocates, a de novo program started in the Children's Health Center, that utilizes volunteers to standardize social needs screening and resource connections within a clinical visit.
