From 2021-24 she was a clinical assistant professor in pediatric radiology and pediatric interventional radiology at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, where she treated pediatric conditions including lymphatic abnormalities, portal hypertension, and vascular anomalies.

Dr. Young has conducted and published translational and clinical research on a range of pediatric issues including MR neurography, liver transplantation, musculoskeletal MRI, and venous malformations. She has presented at regional, national, and international conferences on tumor cryoablation, vascular malformations, lymphangiography, and May-Thurner’s syndrome.

At Stanford, Dr. Young mentored women and underrepresented trainees at various stages of their careers and wrote for the university’s diversity newsletter. As the junior representative for the Society of Pediatric Interventional Radiology (SPIR) since 2022, she has implemented a mentor/mentee program dedicated to providing enhanced support along the career path. For three years, Dr. Young was co-lead member of the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Radiology Peer Learning and care improvement committee (CIC).
