Get to Know Me

Listening is key. I may sometimes end up running late, but I take as much time with families as needed, addressing all their concerns and doing whatever it takes to provide the best care I can for each child I see. At the end of the day, families know I’m treating their child as if I was treating my own.

Why I Treat Children

Kids are amazing, resilient people. They have their own way of looking at things and choosing their own path. It’s rewarding and humbling to help them make good choices. It’s also a privilege to be let into a family unit to help them with their child. I enjoy building nice relationships that are rewarding.

What I'm Passionate About

It’s important to stop and listen to what children and families tell us, to address any concerns parents are feeling. For kids with chronic conditions, we sometimes see families struggling financially and try to stay sensitive to those pressures when ordering tests and medications.
