  • On Staff Since: July 2022
"I completed categorical fellowship and a 4th year in advanced imaging in Pediatric Cardiology at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago before arriving at Seattle Children's Hospital. While interested in all areas of imaging, I have been especially focused on cardiac MRI and procedural echocardiography, including 3D imaging. My research has centered on assessing for early changes in myocardial structure/function in Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy using cardiac MRI and leveraging procedural echocardiography to reduce infant exposure to radiation/contrast during transcatheter pulmonary valvuloplasty. I also have a special interest in medical education and completed the McGaw Medical Education Clinical Scholars program while in Chicago to enhance my clinical teaching skills. In addition to my work in non-invasive imaging, I spend time taking care of inpatients at our main campus and see general cardiology and fetal patients at our Bellevue site."
