Board Certifications

Anesthesiology; Pediatric Anesthesiology

I am a board-certified anesthesiologist who specializes in pediatric anesthesia. Having an illness and needing surgery can make people feel vulnerable and afraid. I strive to relieve these feelings through excellent and compassionate care. The children I care for are the most vulnerable and the most incredibly resilient patients at the same time. I have a young daughter, so I know personally how our children are the center of our universe and I share the belief that they deserve only the best. Every day I grasp the chance to play a positive role in the lives of my patients and their families.

In addition to caring for patients, I am also interested in quality improvement in the workplace. Namely, I am working to identify ways to improve value and outcomes in anesthesiology.

In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, reading, and spending time with my family.
