Personal Statement

I joined Midwestern University to be part of a team that provides high quality veterinary care and student education and aims to develop strong research to optimize patient care. My primary goals are to continue providing high quality anesthesia and analgesia to patients, develop teaching strategies to empower students and foster their independence, and contribute to research that can further develop the anesthesia field. I hope to nurture in others a passion for anesthesia and analgesia.
