Get to Know Me

I love getting to know my patients and families. Through developing relationships, I can best treat children. 

Why I Treat Children

I love children. I love how they see the world and especially how they see medicine. From very early in life, I knew I wanted to be a pediatrician. I loved science and I loved being around kids. My love of pediatrics has only grown throughout the years as I meet new people and learn new things. I tell people all the time, I have the best job in the world. 

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about treating children as a whole and partnering with them through childhood. My goal is to make the doctor’s office a safe place for children to be themselves and discuss concerns. I am also passionate about teaching. I have had amazing mentors and teachers in my life and want to give back the time and education that was given me. Also, teaching keeps me on my toes!
