About me

Dr. McGrath cares for adults who were born with congenital heart disease. This includes caring for any problems these conditions can cause. She also has a strong interest in caring for athletes with heart disease.

Dr. McGrath enjoys forming strong connections with patients and caring for people throughout their lives. This might mean caring for young adults who have received heart care as children and are switching to an adult heart specialist. It might also mean helping women who were born with a heart condition throughout their pregnancy. Or it might mean helping older adults with congenital heart disease face the challenges of aging.

Dr. McGrath’s research interests include learning more about the benefits of exercise in adults with congenital heart disease. She is passionate about helping patients make exercise a part of their lives.

In her spare time, Dr. McGrath enjoys hiking, camping and skiing with her family. Her favorite vacation spot is her childhood home in Slovenia, where she is proud to share her European roots with her children. She also enjoys baking and decorating sweet treats for her family and friends.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
