Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests include treatment of children and young adults with neuromuscular disorders like Duchenne muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, congenital muscular dystrophies, and congenital myopathies. I am also interested in designing medical guidelines, education, and communication tools that allow children with complex respiratory needs to receive high quality individualized treatment wherever they go.

Care Philosophy
I am devoted to providing the highest quality, most effective, and most ethical care to all patients in a warm and trusting environment. I believe in treating each child as an individual and addressing their needs as part of their overall health. At Children's Hospital Colorado, our multidisciplinary team is made up of many pediatric experts, including nurses, respiratory therapists, child life specialists, social workers, dieticians, and various medical specialists. Our team approach makes the child's and family's goals the guiding force of our work and each team member works tirelessly to achieve those goals.
