My approach is to help educate families and empower them to make informed decisions about their child’s healthcare. I am lucky to be part of a multidisciplinary team that cares for children with single ventricle hearts, based on the unique needs of these kids and young adults. Our emphasis is on wellness – both of mind and body.
