A great source of happiness is seeing dialysis patients discharged from the hospital with a perfectly working kidney, leaving behind years of stress and anxiety, provoked by the long dialysis hours, fixed schedule, and dietary restrictions. The constantly evolving nature of transplant medicine manifesting in advancement in immunosuppression therapy, surgical techniques, allocation systems and exploring new areas to increase the donor pool fuels my admiration to the field. I am a mother of two beautiful girls who I enjoy spending every moment with. I like travelling and reading during my free time.
