Since my early years in medical school and training I was always fascinated by both cardiology and critical care medicine. 

My mentor during residency training was a cardiologist and I very well remember those nights at the pediatric critical care unit where we would care for critically ill cardiac patients. I enjoyed the physiology and anatomy understanding and their application to the bedside care. I recognized how rewarding it is to share my knowledge with cardiac patients and their parents and families. During my pediatric critical care fellowship, I encountered a wide variety of cardiac critical care cases. Many of these ranged from time of birth throughout different age groups, at time of diagnosis, critical management or after surgical procedures. This has only excited me more to further enrich my experience, and hence I pursued a dedicated fellowship training in pediatric cardiac critical care.
