Additional Information

I am a pediatrician with a subspecialty board certification in pediatric critical care. I have practiced pediatric critical care in quaternary care children’s hospitals for the last thirty years and have qualified as an expert witness many times during that time period in several states. I have also performed a myriad of leadership roles including committee chairs, secretary of the medical staff, Vice President and President of the medical staffs and a Board member of both Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughters and the Development Board of Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters. I joined Operation Smile in 1993 and traveled with them extensively caring for children with craniofacial abnormalities in 26 countries. After many years of clinical service I took over the credentialing of our international physician partners. I was ultimately invited to join the Operation Smile Board and served in that role for more than 10 years. In the last fifteen years I have worked in a locums role as a Pediatric Intensivist and Pediatric Hospitalist in a wide variety of hospital venues large and small.
