I believe in providing high quality care to patients and their families during their time admitted to the hospital. I work to support families during the crisis of their child’s hospitalization and coordinate care between different providers within the hospital. 

Clinical Interests:

Interests lie within all conditions that cause patients to be admitted to the hospital ranging from mild self-limited infections to chronic conditions.

Research Interests:

I am involved in several clinical research projects investigating first febrile UTI and Non-typhoidal Salmonella infections in healthy children. I am also interested in how utilizing the electronic medical record within simulated teachings can help increase realism and learning.
