Pediatric Cardiology | Female

Care Philosophy

My early fascination with studying human anatomy and my desire to work directly with people to improve their well-being inspired me to pursue a career in medicine.  

Now, as a practicing pediatric interventional cardiologist, I not only explore my interests in cardiology and participate in the direct care of patients every day, but I also contribute my own thoughts to current practices in order to advance the field. This iterative process of medicine frequently challenges me to adapt my own practices as a physician to improve the quality of care used to treat patients. It is my strong belief that the role of a physician is not only to be responsible for the treatment and management of a patient's care, but also to ease the difficult situations faced by patients and their families through honest conversation and unwavering support.
