The patient and family are important members of the care team, and their voices and opinions matter.



I was inspired to pursue my career because of my personal connection to congenital heart disease, as well as my passion for caring for the most complex and critically ill children with congenital heart disease.

In my practice, I believe that every patient is actually two patients — the child in my care and their family. They are equally important, and we must provide the best care possible for the child and empower and support their parents and caregivers through the process. The patient and family are important members of the care team, and their voices and opinions matter. We treat every child like they’re our own.

In my research, we’re seeking to improve the education of patients and families in the CICU to reduce stress, optimize understanding and improve care.

During my free time, I enjoy exercising and spending time with my family.
