I am a pediatric nurse practitioner, specializing in ENT and the care of children with a tracheostomy. My professional focus is leading our pediatric tracheostomy and home ventilator team in the inpatient and outpatient settings. I focus on shared decision making and patient and family engagement for medically complex children. My work highlights creating and implementing quality improvement initiatives for this population with a focus on patient safety, care coordination, communication and standardized clinical guidelines and protocols.
