2018 was an amazing year! I obtained double board certification in anesthesiology and critical care medicine, transitioned to my adult cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship, and am so excited to be finishing my “formal” medical training in the next 6-7 months!

2019 will be an exciting year for me. After a decade of medical training, I’ll (hopefully) be a triple board certified perioperative physician ready to begin working as a full time attending back in the Texas Medical Center! 🙂
Hope everyone has a safe and happy new year!
