My Passion for Healthcare

The strength and resiliency of children continues to inspire me every time I walk into the intensive care unit. This makes long days and nights attending to the needs of even the sickest kids worth every minute. I am devoted to improving the lives of children inflicted with acute and chronic disease conditions and seek to insure their best possible outcomes once they leave the ICU. I am fortunate to work alongside an incredible team of multi-disciplinary colleagues that strives to provide the highest quality critical care Central Texas can offer.

My Clinical Focus

I specialize in the care of children with life-threatening illnesses that require continuous monitoring and support. My passion outside of my commitment to these children includes teaching students and residents about critical care physiology and management through interactive educational platforms and simulation. I also have a vested interest in protocolized sedation regimens, recognizing and screening for ICU delirium, and augmenting the incidence of Post-Intensive Care Syndrome.
