I am passionate about providing comfort and enhancing quality of life for children with chronic and life limiting conditions. I enjoy working in two sections that allow me to focus on helping children live better for longer.

Clinical Interests:

I like teaching effective communication skills for pediatric providers, and using simulation to promote quality patient care. I enjoy volunteering yearly in Haiti to teach nurses and doctors there how to care for critically ill children.
