I am dedicated to taking excellent care of the children that parents entrust to our care at Texas Children's Hospital. I know that it takes a team effort which includes the nurses, surgeons, and anesthesiologists all working together to achieve a common goal: a safely conducted surgery. I am especially excited to be a part of the Fetal Anesthesia Team at the TCH Pavilion for Women and the NICU Anesthesia Team. My research interests include quality improvement, video education, and utilizing simulation to improve patient care.
