Personal Statement

I chose to be a pediatrician because I enjoy the opportunity to work with children and follow them as they mature and grow. 

I found my passion with pediatric nephrology, where I am privileged to be intimately involved with patients and their families in clinical care, and also engaged with the research of emerging issues affecting children.
