Get to Know Me

I have always enjoyed working with children and coached soccer and tutored while in high school. My interest in medicine began when I worked as a hospital volunteer while in college. I really enjoyed helping children, especially those with disabilities.

Why I Treat Children

Children have an amazing attitude and resilience. As a developmental-behavioral pediatrician, I am committed to working with children and their families in order to maximize every child’s potential. I am continuously inspired by the children and families I work with every day.

What I'm Passionate About

I’m passionate about kids with disabilities and helping them get the resources they need.

I try to make myself accessible and serve as a resource for children I care for and their families.
