My Passion for Healthcare

As an undergraduate at UT-Austin, I volunteered at Brackenridge Hospital. I discovered my passion for medicine. Pediatric surgery allows me to care for children, empower parents and be a mentor. I enjoy meeting parents, caring for their newborn and seeing their child grow into a young adult. After seeing the lack of adequate (and fashionable) adaptive clothing, I launched Spoonie Threads in 2015. Spoonie Threads is an adaptive apparel and accessories company created for children and adults with disabilities or chronic illnesses. For more information, visit
