Clinical Interests
I take care of patients of all ages with congenital heart disease. My clinical areas of interest include the transition process from pediatric to adult based models of heath care as well as lipid disorders in children.

Care Philosophy
I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I have the unique opportunity to follow patients from early childhood through adulthood. I therefore take into account both the current situation as well as what the future may hold when counseling patients.

Volunteer Activities
Board of Directors for 2 Hearts, a non profit group to help educate and connect teenagers with congenital heart disease
