My research is focused on improving burnout and stress in healthcare professionals using mindfulness-based interventions, including yoga. I am also interested in investigating the effect of contemplative training on stress-related, health-relevant circulating and epigenetic markers in various at-risk populations. Clinically, I enjoy implementing evidenced-based treatment as a behavioral health psychologist and peer supervisor. Working with healthcare professional teams and interdisciplinary mentors has focused my career on the continued development of interprofessional education, practice and research. I hope to one day develop, lead and evaluate an interdisciplinary mindful healthcare team.
