While training, she performed clinical research and earned several research grants and awards, including the ACOG/Boehringer Ingelheim Research Award in Female Sexual Dysfunction. Her research interests include surgical outcomes of pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and resident education.
