Since 2010, she has been lead counselor for the UCSF Cardiovascular Genetics Program, which provides comprehensive care for patients and families with inherited heart diseases, including cardiomyopathy (heart muscle abnormalities that impair heart function), arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms), conditions affecting the aorta (the large artery carrying blood from the heart to the body), dyslipidemia (abnormal bloodstream levels of lipids, or fats), congenital heart defects and sudden cardiac death.
