I returned to the faculty of the University of Utah in 2014, where I am a Professor in the Division of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology. I completed my undergraduate studies at Duke University and the University of Wisconsin, my medical education at the University of Wisconsin, and my fellowship training at the University of Utah.

My clinical interests include the treatment of all pediatric cancers and hematologic disorders, with an emphasis on acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Over the past 12 years, I have been an active member of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), serving as study chair for ALL clinical and biology clinical trials. Currently I am a member of the COG ALL Executive Committee, the ALL liaison for the Adolescent and Young Adult Discipline Committee, a member of the Hematology-Oncology Steering Committee and a Vice Chair for the ALL Disease Committee, overseeing frontline clinical trials.

I returned to the University of Utah Department of Pediatrics and HCI in January of 2014 to serve as the Medical Director for a newly established High Risk Leukemia and Lymphoma Program at Primary Children’s Hospital; to continue my research in childhood leukemia and to serve as Chair of the Data and Safety Monitoring Committee at HCI.
