  • About Me:

    I really enjoy caring for children — so much so that I gave up adult medicine entirely. Children are so resilient, and I am always amazed at how they develop. I also love making them laugh. It’s the best part of my job.

    When you bring your child to me for care, I see us as a team. Working together, we have the greatest impact on your child’s health.

    When I’m not at work, I enjoy running, biking, gardening and exercising with my kids.
