My approach to care

My approach to care Is whole-person, whole-family. A child thrives in a family where all members are healthy and supported and when we care for all the child’s physical and emotional needs.

Why I went into healthcare

I became a pediatrician because I am fascinated and amazed at the resiliency of young minds and bodies, and I find such joy in watching children and families grow and helping to achieve healthy futures.

Something you might not know about me

I used to play the tenor saxophone when I was younger, and, if you look real hard, you might find a music book I modeled for that is still in print today!
