Get to Know Me

I was born and raised in Florida, did my undergrad training at the University of Miami, medical school at Florida Atlantic University and residency at the University of Florida. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to be a pediatrician. I enjoy building relationships with my patients and their families, and celebrating all life’s little moments with them.

Why I Treat Children

Working with children brings out the best in me. As a pediatrician, I have the honor to watch children grow up in my practice. I get to see them grow from precious newborns to energetic toddlers to star students to well-established teens headed to college. To share these moments with the kids and their families means so much to me.  

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about working closely with my patients and their parents to ensure that they are active members in the health care team. I want to empower families to ask questions and feel that they are being heard. I enjoy walking side-by-side with my patients and their families by celebrating the little moments, and providing comfort and advice during life’s challenges.   I have special interest in issues such as:  behavior  development  

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to make a difference by providing a friendly, open atmosphere in my office. I want my patients and families to know that there are no “silly” questions. We are all learning together. Whenever they meet me inside or outside the office, they will get my undivided attention and listening ear. We are partners on this health care journey!
