• “The children’s joy and hope inspire me to be the best physician I can be.”

Growing up, my pediatrician and subspecialists were compassionate physicians who helped me feel comfortable in scary situations. I knew I wanted to help people in the same way someday. In medical school, I fell in love with pediatrics. Despite illness or disease, children are joyful and parents are hopeful. Their joy and hope inspire me to be the best physician I can be.

I was drawn to cardiology because of the fascinating physiology and the amazing advances in medical and surgical treatments of congenital and acquired heart disease. My goal is to partner with families so they understand their child’s heart disease and all the treatment options available. Most importantly, I want to help children live healthy and fulfilling lives, where visits with me are only a small portion of their time.

My favorite question to ask during a visit is, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” This question helps frame our work in the context of the child’s whole life. It is a true honor to watch my patients grow up.
