Pediatric critical care requires a collaborative team environment to provide effective, safe and compassionate care. I am dedicated to providing exemplary care through a multidisciplinary and patient-centered approach. 

My primary professional interest is Transport Medicine, specifically the transport of critically ill children, and I have completed additional training in this field. The expert patient care, logistical management and seamless communication necessary to perform a successful transport creates an intricately balanced system which challenges the field to move forward at a rapid pace.
