Key accomplishments during her 10-year tenure in the University of Texas system have been reduction in several HAI in hospitals she served, implementation of prevention programs including hand hygiene and healthcare personnel vaccination programs, enhancement of data infrastructures, and establishment of training programs in healthcare epidemiology. She is currently leading the RITE (Reduce Infections Together in Everyone) program, an 1115 waiver initiative at Parkland. Her areas of expertise include implementation science, outcomes evaluation, hospital safety culture, horizontal adaptive interventions such as positive deviance, and quality improvement, patient safety, and epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections.

 She chairs the infection prevention and control committee at Parkland and serves on several national and regional quality and safety committees including the education committee of the American College of Medical Quality, the public policy and government affairs committee of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, and the Texas Medical Association Council for Quality and Patient Safety.
