Dr. Trivedi is originally from the small town of Roseland, New Jersey. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, she attended Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School (formerly UMDNJ). She completed a residency in Internal Medicine at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester, MA, and then a fellowship in Infectious Diseases from Boston University Medical Center. She joined the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2010 as a Clinical Associate, where she developed an expertise in cardiovascular device infections, including left ventricular assist devices. In 2015, she transitioned into Infection Prevention & Control as the Hospital Epidemiologist for Suburban hospital, a community hospital member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, where she developed and implemented an antimicrobial stewardship program. She completed a fellowship in the Armstrong Institute’s Patient Safety & Quality Leadership program. In 2017, she was recruited to the UTSW faculty as the Medical Director of Infection Prevention for the University Hospitals and is an Associate Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases.

She brings to UTSW a valuable expertise in general infectious diseases such as cardiovascular, bone & joint and CNS infections. Her academic interests are in infection prevention in limited resource settings such as that after natural or man-made disasters, both locally and abroad. In her current leadership role as the Medical Director of Infection Prevention, she is responsible for surveillance of health care associated infections (HAIs) such as CLABSIs, CAUTIs, C. difficile and surgical site infections, in addition to developing processes to aid in the reduction of HAIs. She enjoys collaborating with various departments in the hospital to facilitate the implementation of evidence-based practices to improve the quality of care being provided in the hospital. 

Her interests outside of medicine include painting, poetry, and exploring all things new.
