"Having experienced CHKD as a medical student, resident, physician, and parent, I have grown to appreciate CHKD’s devotion to teaching and caring for not only children, but also whole families and the future generations of physicians. I find great joy in working with such amazing and devoted physicians, nurses and staff. I am humbled and honored to play a role in the health and success of all our patients."
