About me

Dr. Holmes' clinical expertise is in echocardiography including transthoracic, fetal and transesophageal echocardiography.  She provides support in the operating room before and after cardiac surgery as well as assists with device placement in the catherization lab. While she has experience in all forms of congenital heart disease she has particular interest in aortopathies seen in bicuspid aortic valve and Marfan syndrome.  To better serve patients and families with new diagnosis of an aortopathy she holds a combined outpatient clinic with pediatric genetic in order to better serve patients and their families with new diagnosis.

Before going to medical school, she taught social studies in a secondary school in western Massachusetts. Time away from the hospital is spent keeping up with three children and being outdoors as much as possible.
