She also formed relationships with the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care and the Institute for Patient & Family Centered Care, including national presentations and facilitation of Schwartz Center Rounds at Dartmouth-Hitchcock.

She has remained active with the Boyle Program as a volunteer including the CHaD Family Advisory Board, and is a clinical instructor in pediatrics at Geisel.
