Get to Know Me

I have always been interested in medicine, as many of my family members work in the medical field. I started out in middle school as a volunteer in the NICU where my mom worked as a nurse. I loved to hold the babies, and from then on I knew I wanted to work in pediatrics. Working with kids is so much fun and there is never a dull moment!

Why I Treat Children

I’ve always worked with children, beginning in high school as a babysitter in my neighborhood. Before going to physician assistant school I worked with special needs children in the foster care system and as behavioral support staff in a preschool. Working with children brings me so much joy, and their little personalities never fail to brighten my day.

What I'm Passionate About

I’m passionate about educating patients and families about orthopedics. Knowledge is power for parents who are dealing with a new diagnosis, whether it be a simple fracture or a more complex problem. In my free time I love to read, run and cook. I’m from a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania, but moved south to escape winter and work at Nemours.

How I Try to Make A Difference

In all aspects of my life, I try to be as positive as possible. Patients can expect my enthusiasm for orthopaedics to be evident from the beginning of the visit. It truly is the happiest part of my day seeing each pediatric patient, and I hope that joy is obvious. I try to make a difference by taking time to educate both patients and their families and by patiently answering every question I can.
