Get to Know Me

I was born in Belgium, and spent most of my childhood in Belgium and Switzerland before moving to Miami, FL, as a teenager. I have always wanted to become a pediatrician, because of the wonderful example of my pediatrician when I lived in Switzerland. She inspired me to pursue this career. I want to be an integral part of a child and their family’s life. I want to foster relationships, create unforgettable memories, and empower children to become strong and independent adults. 

Why I Treat Children

I love working with children, because they always bring a smile to my face and make my day so much better. I have so much fun working with children and taking care of them. It is a true honor to be a part of these children and their families’ lives. My goal in medicine is to follow children starting from newborns until they become successful adults.

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about creating relationships with the children and their families. I want to be a part of these children’s lives, and watch them accomplish their milestones in life. I want to encourage parents to be strong advocates for their children and be a voice for them when they need to be heard. I will respect every relationship and strive to better the health of the children I care for from every angle.  My medical interests include: Primary Care Pediatrics Breastfeeding Medicine Sleep Hygiene

How I Try to Make A Difference

I try to make a difference by bringing in a smile at every encounter, bringing respect, and making everyone feel welcome and supported. Raising a child is full of blessings and it is one of the most rewarding experiences of a lifetime. I will learn to understand and respect your unique values as a family and will act as an advocate for your child’s health.
