She often uses a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach, partnering with domestic violence survivors, African-Americans and Latinos, adults on the autistic spectrum, people with developmental disabilities, and other minority communities to address issues such as interpersonal violence, depression, chronic pain, unexplained physical symptoms, patient-centered communication, chronic illness management, health disparities, and primary care services.

In her free time, she enjoys skiing, skating, hooping, traveling, and spending time with her husband, step-daughter, and two young children.
