Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I have always enjoyed helping others, especially children. Pediatric medicine has allowed me to pursue the academic challenges that interest me and to enjoy the relationships that are created when getting to know patients and their families.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I grew up in Anaheim, California. After graduating from UCLA with a bachelor of science degree in psychobiology, I received my doctor of medicine from Michigan State University. I completed a dual residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at Michigan State University, graduating with honors in the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. I'm board-certified in pediatrics and a fellow with the American Academy of Pediatrics. I practiced with the Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters in Virginia before relocating to Pennsylvania with my family.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I'm married to Christian Hall, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with WellSpan Orthopedics, and we have three sons. When I'm not transporting my sons to hockey, I enjoy yoga and play with a women's tennis team.
