I am passionate about education and caring for children with complex needs and empowering parents to care for their children. I work in the complex care clinic which caters to children with special needs and in the pediatric resident clinic. My interests are curriculum development for resident education and to improve the care of children with special needs through thoughtful patient centered interventions and evidenced based approaches using engaging digital education.
