She worked for 9 years in the Tucson Community with children, adolescents and adults with a broad range of psychiatric illness, trauma, and developmental disabilities and also with those involved with child welfare, the justice system, schools and other community agencies. She spent two years in service with the National Health Service Corps serving underserved children in the Tucson community, and also founded the Mental Illness and Neuropsychiatric Disorders clinic which is a free clinic run by students in the University of Arizona College of Medicine. She has served as Medical Director and Chief Medical Officer for multiple community mental health agencies and also on quality and peer review committees for community health plans.
In 2019 Dr. Boeve returned to the Banner-University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and is the Program Director for the University of Arizona Child and Adolescent Fellowship Program located at Banner-University Medical Center South (BUMCS). She is working to expand the reach of psychiatric providers by helping develop and implement Collaborative Care to support the psychiatric needs of patients in general and specialty medical clinics through Banner’s Integrated Psychosocial Care (IPC) program.
Aligned with her desire to continue to serve the underserved, she has a special interest in treating children and adolescents with substance use disorders and training others to do the same. Through the use of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), integrative/non-pharmacological techniques and her extensive referral network for partnering in care, Dr. Boeve is working to address the epidemic of substance use disorders within and around the Tucson community.
She is an active member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and the American Association of Directors of Psychiatric Residency Training (AADPRT) and the Arizona Psychiatric Society (APS).
