Personal Statement

It is my privilege to care for the most vulnerable of babies and their families. I am committed to providing the best care for the sick newborn so they have the best chance in life. I have a special interest in the developing newborn brain and in learning what we can do to promote their best outcome, especially when the brain is injured. I also enjoy seeing the babies and their families as they grow in our follow-up clinic for high-risk newborns
