I recognize that health is a basic human right for every person, and caring for the medically underserved was a driving force in my decision to pursue medicine. My grandfather, a physician who devoted his life to the service of others, inspires me each day. My approach to medical care is child-centered, family-focused, and collaborative. I treat my patients as my own family and find great joy in cultivating relationships and watching my patients grow. My focus is not only on treating illness, but also psychological well-being, preventive care, nutrition, safety, and growth and development. I strive to stay current with the latest pediatric developments and approaches to children’s health and practice evidence-based medicine. This also includes following the AAP guidelines on immunizations, as timely vaccinations are vital to children’s health worldwide. Medicine is as much an art as a science, and each child is wonderfully unique.

Art has been an important part of my life and I try to find time to create. My husband and I have three sons who are growing up much too quickly and I am relishing my time with them. I love spending time outdoors and enjoy hiking and working on my garden.
