  • About Me:

    I love taking care of kids and enjoy the challenge of explaining things in ways kids can understand while making doctor’s visits more fun and less scary. Getting to know patients and their families, watching kids grow up, and seeing them become big brothers or sisters is always rewarding.

    My favorite responsibility is helping new parents. Having your first baby is sometimes scary. My job is to provide not only guidance, but lots of reassurance as a stable resource and a familiar face. Seeing babies grow and learn new things and watching their parents become masters in the art of parenting is very gratifying.

    Pediatric obesity is another interest. I approach it in ways that kids can feel empowered to make healthy food choices and find fun ways to be active. Likewise, caring for adolescents also appeals to my greater calling, helping them overcome their struggles with anxiety, depression, puberty, menstrual problems, and acne.
