About Me


MD, Wake Forest School of Medicine


Anesthesiology - Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West


Pediatric Anesthesiology – NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center/Children’s Hospital of New York

I know first-hand what it feels like to overcome the physical, emotional, and psychological stresses of undergoing anesthesia and surgery as a child. A physician’s technical skills and knowledge are essential for providing optimal patient care, but the humanity element is also important. My foremost ambition is to become that advocate and calming presence for children who have the same frightened, uncertain feelings as I did when I presented for my own surgery, and to help them and their families get through such an extraordinary phase in their life.

I am interested in initiatives focused on patient wellness that revolve around educating children and their families on anesthesia and surgery. The goal of this is to facilitate an easier transition as these patients prepare for their surgeries. I am also interested in the mentoring and education of residents and fellows who train at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
