I am the Division Chief of Pediatric Surgery at the University of South Florida. I have been an AAS member since 2010 and have had the opportunity of serving on the publications committee in 2012. The ASC meetings have given me an opportunity to learn from and interact with some truly outstanding peers. A number of my students and residents have benefited from presenting at the ASC and interacting with other faculty. I had the opportunity of completing my MBA the past year and look forward to giving back to the Association by my contributions to the Finance committee.
The AAS is an organization that is over 50 years old. Financial stability has facilitated its growth and standing since its inception. My goals will be to increase organizational financial security through improved revenue generation and utilization. Developing intermediate and long range financial goals to continue to meet the primary objectives of the association will be important. This will facilitate supporting and growing the organization's interest in fostering early academic pilot funding and nurturing surgical ingenuity in a difficult environment. Thank You.
