She subsequently joined the faculty at UCSF, where she rose through the ranks to become a Professor of Clinical Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery and was recruited back to the NIDCR, where she is now the Clinical Director and Chief of the Craniofacial Anomalies and Regeneration Section. She has received much recognition for her work on behalf of clinical researchers, including leadership roles in the UCSF Academic Senate and Chair of the Faculty Council, a Champion of Diversity award from UCSF, and the Alan S.
