My Passion for Healthcare

My initial passion was architecture. As an undergraduate at UT-Austin, my father encouraged me to think about medicine. I became a volunteer at Brackenridge Hospital. That's were I discovered my passion for medicine. Pediatric surgery allows me to care for children, empower parents and be a mentor. I enjoy meeting parents, caring for their newborn and seeing their child grow into a young adult. I'm blessed to be part of the journey.
