About Me

Biography

As a pediatric cardiac physician, I work in the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU). I love the intensity of the cardiac intensive care unit where physiology prevails. I also love the interaction with patients and families.

I provide care to sick children with congenital or acquired heart disease and enjoy getting to know families and hearing about their wins and losses. It’s what makes them who they are.

I grew up in South Africa and was on an NCAA Division One swim team in college.

In my research, I’m studying kidney injury identification and outcomes and the contribution of fluid overload. I work with and lead multi-national collaborations in this area of critical care nephrology to understand the effects of kidney injury on long-term health.
