I strive to be an effective member of the pediatric critical care team to provide the best care available to infants and children with serious illness. As a critical care PA, I focus on family-centered care and evidence based. My interests include working with the Baylor College of Medicine PA physical diagnosis class, educating learners rotating in or orienting to Critical Care and participating as a Simulation Instructor for high fidelity simulation education for intensive care nurses and APPs.
