PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

I began by perfusion career at Boston Children’s Hospital in 1988 as a recent graduate. I was lucky to be mentored by a couple of very experienced “pediatric perfusionists”. Over the past 28 years, I have worked with many of the top congenital heart surgeons who have either stayed at Boston Children's or who have moved on to other institutions. I have been fortunate to be involved in many mission trips around the world. I have been to Shanghai China 9 times for mission work with Project Hope. I have also served as a consultant in pediatric perfusion in Doha, Qatar, & the United Arab Emirates. Most recently, I have been to Ghana, Africa with a team from Boston Children's to perform open heart surgery on children with congenital heart disease.
