Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I was always interested in the sciences and helping people. I respected and admired my pediatrician growing up as well. I developed a bond/trust over the years. I strive to achieve this bond with my patients by giving them the time they need and deserve.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have an interest in headaches and concussions. During my pediatric neurology training at University of Michigan (Go Blue!) I used most of my elective time in either the sports neurology or headache clinic. I played hockey growing up and am a proponent of children being active and learning to be part of a team by playing sports.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends. I enjoy cooking, particularly making breakfast or grilling. I also enjoy playing board games (Settlers of Catan and 7 Wonders are two of my favorites).
