About Me

2017 marks my twelfth year on faculty at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center; I am grateful to serve as a clinician at a world-renowned cancer hospital alongside experts in medicine and academia. In addition to my clinical duties as an associate attending in the Department of Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine, I serve myriad leadership roles and functions. I am Chair of Anesthesia Quality Assurance (QA) and serve as a co-chair on the hospital root cause analysis committee.  I am the Director of Robotic Anesthesia and serve on both our Clinical Practice Committee and platform committees for two of our surgical floors in Memorial Hospital. On the state level, I serve dual roles on the New York State Society of Anesthesiologists where I am on the QA committee for the state and serve as alternate delegate for the District of Manhattan. On a national level, I am an oral board examiner for the American Board of Anesthesiology.
