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