    Personal Statement

    I’ve always enjoyed working with children. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to help kids who have been affected by congenital conditions improve their function and quality of life, as well as help kids who have suffered traumatic injuries return to their pre-trauma status and to their normal activities.
