As a pediatric anesthesiologist, I try to provide compassionate and personalized care for each patient I treat.
When I provide pain management, I use many different methods to keep my patients comfortable. My tools include medication management, integrative care and behavioral management to address the whole patient. When I provide anesthesia services, I work with families to deliver treatment that addresses the family’s goals and needs while caring for the child in the safest way possible.
I chose to be an anesthesiologist because I believe it is the perfect blend of the best parts of medicine.
In my research, I study ways to safely and most effectively provide pain management to our patient population.
I was honored to win a 2018 Young Investigator award from the Society of Pediatric Anesthesia for my work with epigenetics and chronic pain and anxiety.
In my free time, I like to travel, try new restaurants, and spend time with family and friends. I attended the University of Kentucky for my undergraduate and graduate work, and I still cheer enthusiastically for my Wildcats.
