What is your primary professional focus as it relates to our mission areas (clinical, research and/or medical education)?
My area of focus is clinical critical care, especially [on] hemodynamic monitoring systems and point-of-care ultrasound. An additional area of interest is sex and gender differences in lung diseases and critical illness. I am also passionate about medical education for all levels of learners. 

What drew you to UW–Madison and the Department of Medicine?
I was attracted by the mentoring culture. The focus on excellence in clinical care and education was a perfect fit with my interests. Every person I interacted with during my interviews was welcoming and genuine. It made UW–Madison a natural choice for me.

What are you most excited about during your first year with the department in this role? 
Collaborating with other leaders to improve critical care operations; enhancing the educational experience of the trainees rotating through the [Medical Intensive Care Unit]; fostering research programs in the critical care space; and mentoring junior faculty and learners.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? 
Hiking, biking, reading fiction, painting.

Favorite piece of advice from a mentor or inspiring figure in your life?
Best piece of advice I’ve received is to never compare myself to someone else. Everyone's path is different and everyone's goal is different. Trust your decisions and the path you've chosen for yourself.
