I am a cardiologist and Masters swimmer living in Austin, Texas. As co-chair of Sports Cardiology at Austin Heart, I have been able to combine my passion for the field of cardiology and my fascination with the impact of sports and exercise on the heart. I practice at Heart Hospital of Austin at St. David’s Round Rock Medical Center and work with athletes of all ages and abilities. When I am not in the hospital you will find me in the pool at the Texas Swim Center training with Longhorn Aquatics Masters under the watchful eye of our coach, Olympian Whitney Hedgepeth. The views expressed herein are my own.
