My Story

I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life.

I had finished medical school. I was in a surgery internship, and was on track to be a surgeon. Specifically, a urologist.

I had dreamt of being a surgeon since I was in 5th grade. It was something I had written in my middle-school journal, my bio for a 6th grade class project, and would tell everyone I was going to be as such. I told my family and friends I would be one. I told my grandmother I would be one.

But, once in surgery internship….I didn’t like surgery.  Once I was living it, it just didn’t resonate with me. I didn’t like the lifestyle, the attitudes, and brazenness.

I then started questioning my role in medicine, and if medicine was even right for me.

All those years of planning, strategizing, studying, test-taking, and interviewing….was it all for naught?

I was really lost. I feel I let everyone down. I feel I let myself down. But I also felt I duped myself, that I was being an imposter.

This was 2001.

A friend recommended anesthesiology residency.  So, I took that first step.

As an anesthesiology resident, I excelled.

During my pediatric anesthesia rotation, I felt the tug.

As a pediatric anesthesiology fellow, I blossomed.

As a Board-Certified Pediatric Anesthesiologist in a major NYC academic hospital, I taught, lectured, earned awards, and led.

But, there was something more that was tugging at me.
I knew I could impact people on an even more personable and immediate level.

I have found it.

I am called to provide impactful and consistent anesthesia care and build high-excellence anesthesia-service teams, especially for dentists, that has a pronounced ripple effect.

I found my mission. It took a few years and detours.

But, I am now here. Right where I need to be. Where others can reliably depend upon me, and where I can truly help.
