I am an associate professor of pediatrics for the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and University Health.
I completed my undergraduate studies at St. Mary’s University and received my MD at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
I completed residency at the San Antonio Military Medical Center at Brook Army Medical Center and completed fellowship training in Neonatal/Perinatal Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
I am currently the Director of Neonatal Transport and Outreach. I supervise the transport of over 100-140 urgent and emergent transports per year of critically ill neonates born throughout the South Texas Region.
In addition to providing transport support, I also supervise and participate in the education and training of the pediatric, family medicine, and obstetric faculty and staff of the many small regional hospitals across South Texas, helping them prepare and manage complex neonatal cases.
Career Highlights:
I served for 12 years in the United States Air Force as a pediatrician and neonatologist, completing tours at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Okinawa, Japan, and at Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, HI. I earned a final rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Philosophy of Care Statement:
I believe in supporting the medical front lines of rural Texas medical centers by improving outcomes where resources can be limited. This includes providing babies with the best possible care at a time when the first few minutes and hours of life can affect the entire future course of their lives.
