  • Clinical Cardiology Fellow, Heart Institute



As a pediatric cardiology fellow, I see great value in trying to understand what makes each of my patient's unique. I realize that a one-size-fits-all mentality falls short when dealing with the complexities of pediatric cardiology, and I always strive to keep seeing the whole patient, even if much of my focus is on their heart.

I have always loved how medicine combines the objectivity and rigor of science with each patient's humanity and their individual needs. When I was in medical school, I was amazed by the incredible resilience of children — they inspired me to pursue a career in pediatrics. As my training progressed, I was drawn to the complexity and unique physiology of cardiology and have made pediatric cardiology my career.

I was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, the medical honor society, as a graduating medical student and strive to bring a focus on excellence into my care for patients. As a fellow at Cincinnati Children’s, I am always eager to learn and grow. I try to bring curiosity and determination into the care I provide for each patient.

My research focuses on improving interstage mortality through the use of large collaborative research networks. Interstage is the time between the first and second palliative surgeries for patients with single-ventricle heart disease — a time when patients are at particularly high risk for complications.

I live in Cincinnati with my wife and our two young children. We love spending time outdoors and try to go hiking as much as possible.
