I was born and raised in New York, and will always be a Yankees fan. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from The College of New Jersey. There I gained a great respect for deaf culture and today I continue to advance my sign language skills so I can better care for the deaf community. As a Disney enthusiasist, I am very happy to continue my personal life and professional career here in Central Florida.
Why I Treat Children
I find caring for children to be rewarding every single day — there is never a dull moment. Kids offer a unique prespective that’s full of imagination, spontanity and humor. Their curiosity is endless and contagious. I am honored to have even a small impact in the lives of my patients and their families.
What I'm Passionate About
I believe the best way to care for children is to take a team approach, and I’m committed to making the family an active part of each visit. I’m passionate about providing care that’s multifaceted, meaning the approach I take for all of my patients includes not only my recommendations, but also what’s reasonable and achievable for the family and the patient. I believe medical care is best accomplished when everyone involved has a part to play; we hold each other accountable and together can have great success.
Make A Difference
I work to make a positive difference in the lives of each one of my patients, be that in a small or life-changing way. It all starts with taking the time to have a conversation and really listen to patients and their families. Only by listening, can I truly understand the concerns of patients and offer real-life and attainable goals.
