I always knew that I wanted to work with kids; they are so resilient physically and emotionally. Cardiology appealed to me because I was fascinated by how the heart functions, and the field was rapidly changing the outcomes of children born with heart defects. My first patient as an intern was a newborn with a serious congenital heart defect who died the day after surgery. I've never forgotten her or her family. Advances since then ensure that more than 90 percent of children born today with the same heart defect will survive to adulthood.
I am fortunate to be surrounded by brilliant, dedicated people, all working toward the same goals. Our entire organization is committed to excellence and continuous improvement, which is exciting and humbling for me. I strive to provide excellent service for every patient I meet.
