About

Biography

I find great joy in seeing kids who were once sick, due to liver disease, become healthy. As a pediatric liver doctor, I care for children with pediatric liver diseases, autoimmune liver conditions and those who need a liver transplant.

I believe in teamwork and collaboration, especially with patients, families, and other primary care and subspecialty doctors and nurses. When we work together, we can create the best care plans based on scientific evidence and the child’s and family's preferences.

My work involves applying science and performing research to better help kids with liver disease. I have always enjoyed working with children. It’s a unique privilege to get to watch kids grow. And I find it rewarding to provide medicine or a liver transplant to a child in need.

My research focuses on autoimmune liver diseases, including autoimmune hepatitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. My group is trying to identify noninvasive ways of discovering liver fibrosis. I also collaborate with providers at other children's hospitals as well as the ImproveCareNow community to develop A-LiNK (Autoimmune Liver Disease Network for Kids) in an effort to improve health outcomes for children with autoimmune liver disease.

In my free time, I love knitting. I find it relaxing and rewarding.
