Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests include pediatric primary care, early childhood development, and international adoption. I specialize in global health and have expertise in childhood institutionalization and early childhood health and development in resource-limited settings around the world.
I strive to provide the highest quality of comprehensive care to all of my patients and their families. My care philosophy is that the child and family should be treated and cared for together as a whole. As director of the multidisciplinary International Adoption Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado, I am passionate about supporting internationally adopted children and their families.

Research Interests for Patients
My research interests are focused on emerging technologies for global health promotion, early childhood development in resource limited settings, and international adoption. I am currently evaluating an SMS text message reminder platform to improve more timely immunization coverage in both rural and urban Guatemala. I have been involved in developing a digitalized birth registry of women and infants in the southwest region of Guatemala as well as the development and implementation of a program promoting early childhood health and development in this region. I am also evaluating the current evidence base for the initial health screening of internationally adopted children.
