"Whether I am providing reassurance for the parents of a child with an innocent heart murmur or guiding and supporting a family when their child has a diagnosis of serious congenital heart disease, I find my work very fulfilling. I enjoy the continuity of care that I provide to my patients from fetal life to adulthood and the relationships I build with their families."
