She is Clinical Associate Professor of Otolaryngology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and is a member of the Cochlear Implant Center at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in New York City. In these and other hospital capacities, she helps educate medical students and residents in basic and advanced otology and neurotology.
