What made you decide to work in transplantation?: 
I find transplant immunology fascinating. I will credit my mentors throughout my training for igniting the spark. The resilience shown by our patients and their families in transplant is so inspiring that it motivates me everyday. I am also thankful for the opportunity to teach and pass along our current knowledge to new learners as well as continue to be a life long learner myself in the ever evolving field of transplantation.

Although I feel excited about all the opportunities I have with my clinical work, research, administrative and teaching responsibilities, without doubt, my patients and their achievements are the most fulfilling aspect of my work.
