She is board certified in in Child Neurology, as well as in Epilepsy. She specializes in intractable epilepsy, including such treatments as Vagal Nerve Stimulation and the use of CBD oil. She has a special interest in Neurocutaneous syndromes such as Tuberous Sclerosis Complex and Neurofibromatosis. Another interest of hers is Pediatric stoke, both treatment of acute stroke as well as its long-term consequences.
She has a long-standing passion for caring for children with rare neurologic conditions. She is active in the Texas Newborn State Screen Program and can guide parents of infants who screen positive for X-linked Adrenoleukodystrophy and Spinal Muscular Atrophy through the process of diagnosis. She has experience in the use of gene therapy for Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
One of the things that ties together these seemingly diverse interests is the need that these patients have for multi-disciplinary care. Dr. Averill has made it her mission to develop relationships with multiple other physicians and practitioners in the community in order to coordinate the care of patients with these complex medical conditions.
She has lived most of her life in the state of Texas. In her free time, she enjoys hiking and exploring the state park system. She has two beloved “fur children”; a dog named Porkchop and a cat named Josie.
