Working as a hospital volunteer led me to change my career path from chemical engineering to medicine. My first residency was in pediatrics. I spent two years as a pediatrician in the U.S. Public Health Service before my residency in anesthesiology and my pediatric anesthesia fellowship.
As chief of Anesthesiology at Cincinnati Children’s, I want every patient and family to receive the care they expect from my team. What matters to patients and their families is what matters to me.
In my research, we are looking to improve patient care by developing tools that help clinicians make better and more informed decisions in real-time.
I was honored to receive the 2019 Aubrey Rose Foundation Above and Beyond Doctor of the Year award. This award was special to me because I had the privilege of caring for Aubrey Rose.
When I’m not helping patients or involved in my research, I enjoy spending time with my three granddaughters. I also love learning new things about a multitude of topics.
