About

Biography

As a pediatric anesthesiologist, I enjoy working with children to improve their quality of life. I specialize in caring for patients with congenital heart defects who are undergoing surgical procedures.

With my personalized approach to care, I see every child as an individual and treat each child as if they were one of my own. I try my best to empathize with what the families are going through.

As a pediatric hospital, we enjoy a collaborative and congenial environment. Here, everyone comes together for the good of the patient. I find it greatly rewarding to form this type of partnership with the members of my patients’ care teams.

I’m honored to be recognized by The American Society of Hematology (ASH) as the 2019 Blood Utilization Champion. This award acknowledges my work within the blood utilization review committee for improving the safety and utilization of blood administration within Cincinnati Children’s.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, hiking, kayaking, yoga and meditation.
