As a pediatric anesthesiologist, I specialize in providing care for patients who need cardiac surgery or other heart-related procedures.
I want my patients and their families to know that safety and comfort are my highest priorities when providing patient care.
I decided to pursue anesthesiology in medical school. During my anesthesiology residency, I most enjoyed my pediatric anesthesia rotations. Pediatric cardiac anesthesia is particularly interesting and challenging to me.
I believe innovation and technology can improve the patient and family experience. I’m honored that an interdisciplinary team, that I organized and led, won a “Hackathon” competition. We created an app for pediatric patients and their families that guides them through the perioperative care experience. Our creation won first-prize — beating out more than 85 participants from across the United States.
A fun fact about me is that I am a private pilot.
