Dr. Hupp cares for children with congenital heart disease when they need care in the intensive care unit. She enjoys the challenge, complexity and diversity that she gets to encounter in her patients. No two patients are alike and she ends each day with a sense of fulfillment getting to care for children and their families during the hardest times of their lives. Caring for children in the ICU is not only about caring for the child, but also caring for their friends and family. Dr. Hupp’s passion also lies in research and education to improve patient care. She strives to find the answers to the questions that she faces every day in the care of her patients. She is proud to work in a field where she can make a difference in the lives of others. Dr. Hupp also enjoys hiking and swimming with her yellow lab, horseback riding, and going on mission trips as often as she can.
