Dr. Simonaire completed her Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology fellowship at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) in Richmond, VA where she conducted research on adults with pollen allergies. She also conducted research on food allergies, and has a strong interest in food allergy challenges. Prior to that, she completed her Pediatric residency at Lutheran General Children’s Hospital (now Advocate Children’s Hospital). While there she piloted a study to assess the impact of asthma education on children.

She has presented at several major national and regional conferences on topics including asthma, food allergies, drug allergies, and rare immunologic conditions.

She and her husband are excited to be returning to the Midwest, where she grew up. In her spare time, she enjoys long distance running, community service, and watching her favorite football team. (Please don’t hold it against her that it is the Packers!)  She especially enjoys spending time with her family, playing with her 2 year old son, and is looking forward to welcoming a 2nd child in September 2019.
