My areas of clinical interest include pediatric otolaryngology, and sinusitis. I partner with the Pediatric Neurosurgeons at TCH for the endoscopic removal of pituitary and other midline skull base tumors.

A desire to improve processes in health care led me to take and complete a Certificate in Health Care Management jointly sponsored by Baylor College of Medicine and Rice University in 2010. I am also interested in improving our interactions with the Electronic Health Records and other technologies.
