Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“I enjoy developing a partnership with patients, empowering them to take an active role in improving their functional and cosmetic outcomes, and helping them return to independent lifestyles. I’m passionate about giving patients resources to help them develop support systems within the burn community to facilitate deeper healing and recovery.”
