She supports multiple research projects within the Targeted Long-acting Combination Injectable Antiretroviral Therapy (TLC-ART) Development Team.

The Early Detection of GEnetic Risk (EDGE) Study aims to implement genetic testing for hereditary cancer in the primary care setting. For her master's thesis, Faith collected and analyzed qualitative data from previvors, people who tested positive for a genetic variation associated with an increased risk for hereditary cancer. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time outdoors whether that be in the form of running, playing tennis, or quality time with friends/family.
