"We often focus on what's happening in front of us in the NICU as we carefully think about every organ system and how they're working together, but it is equally important to me to take care of the family."

My Biography & Research

Biography

As a neonatologist, I care for babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Neonatology is about taking care of babies and building relationships with their families. Many of our families did not expect their baby to be in the NICU, so it can be a scary time — sometimes lasting for weeks to months. We often focus on what's happening in front of us in the NICU as we carefully think about every organ system and how they're working together, but it is equally important to me to take care of the family.

In addition to patient care, I’m also studying how to improve the use of human milk in the NICU and how to optimize a baby’s growth with maternal and donor breast milk.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and knitting.
