Dr. Cossu was was born and raised in Rhode Island where she spent her summers on the beautiful Naragansett Bay beaches. The Atlantic Ocean holds a special place in her heart.

During her pediatric anesthesia fellowship, she became determined to take care of children as a part of her career. She is continually inspired by the bravery of her patients and their families.
