"Having a child in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit can be one of the most stressful times in a family's life. I am honored to work alongside amazing team members to provide children and families with the best possible medical care. I seek to understand the individual stories of each child and family and find ways to provide support uniquely geared to their needs. Communication is the essential foundation of family-centered care and great medical care. I am particularly honored to be able to guide and support families through complex medical decision-making related to critical heart issues."
