Patients Seen: Children and Adolescents

I knew very ear­ly on that I want­ed to be a doc­tor and believed I would become a sur­geon, fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of one of my inspi­ra­tions, Dr. Alexa Canady, the first African Amer­i­can Neu­ro­sur­geon in the US. How­ev­er, what ulti­mate­ly grabbed my heart was Pedi­atrics. While on my med­ical school rota­tions, I decid­ed that advo­cat­ing on behalf of one of our most vul­ner­a­ble and promis­ing pop­u­la­tions, our chil­dren, was where my pas­sion lied.

Personal Interests

I am mar­ried with four chil­dren. When I am not work­ing, I enjoy spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly on vaca­tions, assem­bling jig­saw puz­zles, and being a pos­i­tive role mod­el to help gal­va­nize inter­est in STEM careers and help young girls real­ize their own poten­tial. I am hum­bled by the abil­i­ty to pro­vide excel­lent care to a diverse pop­u­la­tion of chil­dren, and I am cur­rent­ly accept­ing new patients into my practice.
