Transplant hepatology combines a unique constellation of critical care, palliative care, endoscopic procedures and ethics. It is this challenging combination that sparks my passion for this field and why I love to care for all patients with chronic liver disease. My goal is to individualize care for each patient to help them understand their disease and work on goals of care with an ultimate goal of liver transplantation if it is needed. From an academic standpoint, I am interested in clinical education of both undergraduate and graduate students to help train the next generation of doctors.
