I knew I wanted to be a pediatrician at an early age, and I’ve always enjoyed working with children. As a hospital pediatrician, I care for a diverse population of patients and I am able to make an impact throughout their healthcare journey.
I believe that hospitalization is not just about the patient's illness. To truly care for a patient, we must also care for the family. I always think about how the hospitalization impacts the patient's life outside of the hospital, too.
As the medical director of Home Care Services, I help bridge that transition between hospital and home. This allows me to ensure patients and families get the support and care they need in both settings.
In my research, I focus on understanding and improving care transitions.
When I’m not working, I love being at the beach and spending time with my family.
