Get to Know Me

I’m married to a wonderfully supportive husband, and we look forward to having children one day. One of the reasons I became a doctor was because I always had a great curiosity for medicine and enjoyed helping others. My own pediatrician was a great role model and mentor. Graduating from medical school was a proud moment for me.

Why I Treat Children

I decided to become a pediatrician because I enjoy taking care of kids and the needs of the entire family. Knowing that I can help a child even in the smallest way, gives me such joy.
