    Collapse Overview
    I care for all variety of critically ill children, teenagers, and young adults in the ICU. My particular areas of interest are thinking about how to make our system more equitable and just for patients, and how we train the next generation of physicians to be anti-oppressive in their thinking and practice.

    My philosophy of care is one part Derrick Shephard’s “It’s a beautiful day to save lives” one part Captain Hook’s “Indefatigable good form” and one part Mary J. Blige’s “Don’t need no hateration, holleration in this dancery.”
