About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I feel that if we can take care of the children in our society we are investing in the future of the community. Children have very unique needs. To be able to meet those needs, provide education, support families, and watch them thrive is a true blessing.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I saw the need for a pediatric endocrinologist in the area. Previously, patients had to travel many miles to seek proper care. I felt that I could fill that gap and provide excellent care to the Cumberland Valley area. I also fell in love with the warm-hearted people in the area. As a person, I always feel that giving back to the community is the least you can do. I am looking forward to finding out the needs of my patients and working in collaboration with the other pediatric physicians in our area to ensure local children are getting the appropriate quality care they need and deserve.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

My top three interests outside of work would be cooking, hiking, and traveling. Recently I have tried my hand at Vegetable Biryani with much success. I also enjoy exploring the hiking trails in the area with my family on the weekends, as well, since it is simply beautiful outside and fall is an excellent time of year here. On one of our recent trips, we went to the Gulf of Mexico and it was wonderful. We are always excited to find new places to visit.
