"“It is the greatest honor to be entrusted with the care of children suffering from life threatening and life limiting conditions in the PICU. I see every child as a unique individual and view family input as essential in the care of each child. I greatly admire and am humbled daily by the courage and strength of families as they support their children through their journey in the PICU- I do not know how they do it so gracefully. Lastly, I love the teamwork we have in the PICU with nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, nutritionists, subspecialty physicians, surgeons, social workers, along with the families and other care providers working cohesively together to provide the best care possible... it takes a village to care for a critically ill child.”"
