"I am fortunate to work with incredible people at Seattle Children's. Our staff goes out of its way to make families feel welcome and supported. My personal goals are to see families in a timely manner and to provide them with the best care options for their children. A wise surgeon once taught me: 'Treat sick children like they're your own and you'll always make the right choices.' These are the words I live by."
