As a pediatric hospitalist, I enjoy working with patients and their families, which is a large part of what drew me to pediatrics. I love this type of work because I get to assist my patients during a stressful time, hopefully making it easier for them. I try to be very thoughtful about incorporating patient and family input into decisions about care.
I practice inpatient general pediatrics, inpatient complex care and inpatient care of postoperative patients. My teams are experts in coordinating care across groups of providers, and they work to help patients and families navigate this multifaceted space.
In addition to helping patients, I also research quality improvement. I mainly focus on patients with orthopaedic concerns.
During my free time, I like to run, read and try new recipes.
