Patient First has always been my philosophy to patient care. It is always stressful to have a medical condition, whether it is acute or chronic. Navigating the medical world can be complicated and frustrating. Working with nurses, doctors and the rest of our medical team, I ensure that patients and families get the most meaningful and comprehensive medical care to achieve the best outcome. My career started as a nurse in Neurology at TCH. Because I wanted to have a more impact on patient care, education and research, I got my pediatric nurse practitioner degree. I spent 5 years at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC specializing in Neuro-Oncology. In 2009, I joined the Interventional Radiology Division at TCH, specializing in Vascular Anomalies. Currently I am part of the Pediatric Otolaryngology Team. I educate the families and sedate patients for audiogram. My clinical interests consist of helping the medical and research team investigate complex medical conditions to develop better treatments.
