Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I have always loved working with children and will never stop advocating for them.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I have the best job in the world! I am so lucky that I get to help infants, children, and teens every day (yes, I actually like talking to teenagers!). My goal is to listen, understand, and then provide evidence-based care, as both a collaborator and a guide.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I love classic literature and my "to read" pile is never empty. I have an arts background and love to work on creative projects. My background allows me to understand multiple perspectives and connect with different kinds of people. My husband and I love to cook, hike, bike, travel, scuba dive and spoil our two cats.
