During much of her career at CDC, she has worked on diseases such as Salmonella, E. coli O157:H7, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. She currently serves as the CDC focal point for implementing an interdisciplinary One Health approach connecting human, animal, and environmental health to address emerging zoonotic and infectious diseases in order to best protect public health.
