Personal Statement

Having a sick newborn can be very stressful and is often unexpected.  It is my privilege to care for these infants and help families navigate the uncertainty of the NICU experience.   I have a special interest in resuscitation and am involved in research that will further our understanding of how to best care for newborns in their transition to life outside the womb.
