"I am drawn to pediatric emergency medicine because of the tremendous variety of patients, illnesses and acuity that one encounters. I am constantly learning, in order to stay up with the latest advances. I am drawn to teaching for many of these same reasons: sharing the excitement of pediatrics, learning every day to keep up with all of the incredible residents and students who come through our program and most importantly for me having the opportunity to listen to and support these tremendously bright and talented individuals as they make important personal and career decisions. Its a real gift to be a part of that process."
