Personal Statment

I am here to build a pediatric cardiac program, and I am part of the team. To be successful, it has to be a team approach. We have to have good communication, the ability to work together and the flexibility to adapt to changes. I want to be part of that team, to build that team to serve the kids and the adult congenital patients in this area.
