Get to Know Me

I grew up in Delaware and my interest in medicine started here at Nemours. I have a sister with special needs and being a part of the family-centered care that she received at Nemours sparked my interest in the field of pediatrics.

Why I Treat Children

I truly love my job. I enjoy taking care of children of all ages and individualizing every visit to the needs of each child and their family. In pediatrics there is a unique opportunity to build relationships with not only a patient, but their families as well, which makes my job so rewarding.  A child’s visit to the hospital can often be scary, but building rapport and relationships with individuals, not just patients, is important to making them feel comfortable. I really appreciate so many different aspects of pediatrics and am thankful that I have the opportunity to care for children in our primary care office, children admitted to the hospital, and patients in our dermatology access clinic.  

What I'm Passionate About

I am excited about teaching and education. I enjoy teaching children about their health and how to take care of their bodies, as well as educating families about caring for their child’s health care needs. I received fantastic training as a pediatric resident here at Nemours, and I take great satisfaction in supporting and teaching the residents and medical students as they pursue their interests and careers in pediatrics.

How I Try to Make A Difference

I strive to listen and make sure I am addressing the concerns and needs of each individual patient and their family. As a mom, I know that it can be difficult to express your concerns, especially in a busy room with a sick child. My goal is to be approachable, both during the visit and afterwards, so that my patients and their families know they can always ask questions or express their concerns at any time.    Outside of my work at Nemours, I try to make a difference in my community through volunteering with my church, with the Salvation Army, and with the Special Olympics of Delaware.
