I am a board certified general pediatrician with a special interest in hospital medicine. I care for a diverse range of hospitalized patients at Texas Children's Hospital. I truly love what I do and thoroughly enjoy caring for patients and their families. I believe that families are an important part of the medical team and providing education and information to them in order to promote their child's overall health and well-being is something I am passionate about. My other interests involve teaching medical students and residents as well as Quality Improvement. I am currently involved in several Quality Improvement projects within our department.
