After completing my medical degree from the University of the West Indies and internship at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Barbados, I relocated to Connecticut and completed the UConn EM residency and the UConn PEM fellowship programs. Post fellowship, I accepted a faculty position at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) a level 1 trauma center. While working there, in order to augment the EM residents’ exposure to pediatric critical care, I initiated an educational simulation series entitled The Critically Ill Pediatric Patient in the ED, designing simulation cases based on the ACGME educational milestones.

Seven years later an opportunity developed to transition to St Francis Hospital and Medical Center as the Section Chief of Pediatric Emergency Medicine. This facility is a 600+ bed level 1 trauma center and urban regional referral center with a high volume (90,000 patients/year) ED. Hiring included the expectation of bringing PEM expertise to improve pediatric care and education. I continue to work at the CCMC ED and participate in UCONN EM resident education. At St. Francis I review and provide feedback on pediatric cases. I have led several QI projects related to the care of pediatric patients in a general ED and also instruct ED nurses, techs, EMS and physician colleagues through both in situ simulation and sessions in the simulation center.

Two years ago, I accepted the role of Physician Advisor to the Simulation Team at St Francis and started a community outreach program, teaching via simulation in community ED’s in CT. The following year I became core faculty to the UCONN EM residency program and just recently I accepted the position of Assistant Program Director of the UConn EM residency. Over the past 17 years I have enjoyed mentoring high school students, EM residents and PEM fellows in both official and unofficial capacities.

When not caring for patients, teaching or mentoring, I enjoy traveling with my husband and children particularly to warm climates, reading and thanks to the pandemic, ice cream making.
