My focus is always on the child. In the initial meeting I make sure that the child is at the center of my attention and care. I ask questions directly to every child, even if he or she is at a young age. I want to make sure they understand why they are here. I want each child to own their care, and to feel a sense of control over what is happening to them.
Whenever I can help a child's neurological illness, it makes our world a better place. Knowing each child and their family is essential to providing the best care. I want to know the world in which a child lives. That means coming to know their parents, siblings, even their pets. That's the best part of my job. Curing an illness is rewarding, but getting to know a child's world is the most fun part about my job.
