Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include caring for patients with congenital heart disease, arrhythmias, and acquired heart disease, including patients before or after cardiac surgery. I enjoy caring for these patients in the Cardiac Progressive Care Unit (CPCU) and working with a multidisciplinary team. In this unit, I am especially involved in the complex feeding and nutritional needs of single ventricle patients, coordinating care for safe discharges to home, and various quality and safety initiatives to help guide our care.

Care Philosophy
As a pediatric nurse practitioner in a cardiac unit caring for complex patients, my goal is to provide high quality, efficient, and family focused care to all of my patients. I collaborate with the team as well as involve patients and families in daily care plans and decision making, working together to provide unique care to each individual.
