As a pediatric intensivist, my goal is to help kids recover from serious illnesses while helping families through stressful times. I specialize in treating children and adolescents who need mechanical ventilation or resuscitation, and those who have sepsis, head trauma or are in shock. I have been the chair of the Code Committee at Cincinnati Children’s since 2010, and I am also the medical director for the Center for Telehealth.
I had tremendous mentors when I was a resident and then a fellow. I loved the complexity of critical care and the interactions with families during their challenging times.
I received a Distinguished Achievement Award from the American Heart Association, Great Rivers Affiliate in 2016. I've been a fellow in the American College of Critical Care Medicine since 2007.
In my research, I am interested in multimedia medical education. I founded the Critical Care MediaLab at Cincinnati Children's to help improve education to patients, families, medical students, nurses, residents, fellows and practicing physicians through high-quality 3D models.
I used to be a runner and have run 15 marathons, including the Boston Marathon seven times. My personal record is 2:59. I have four kids, all of whom play hockey, including a son and daughter who each played at the college level.
