About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

I have wanted to be a Physician since I was in fifth grade.  I have always been drawn to helping people and there is no greater profession than this one, to help others. 

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

With Pediatrics, I have the opportunity to make a difference when it is needed most - childhood.  Children are the adults of the future and if we don't give them proper care now, I worry what will happen. 

How do you connect with your patients?

One way I try to connect with my patients is through a smile and a sense of humor.  It allows the patients to view you as human, breaking down a barrier and truly allowing me to make a difference. 

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

I enjoy traveling with my family and exploring new places.  As a family, we enjoy going to Broadway shows; my daughter is captivated by musical theater.  I also spend time skiing, reading, and cooking. 

What is your advice for your patients?

During my yearly physicals with my patients, I always let them know they can become whatever they want to be - their future is limitless.
