Physician Bio

Philosophy of Care
I choose pediatrics because I truly enjoy working with children, and I appreciate that families are willing to make healthy changes for their children. I enjoy the spirit and creativity of children, and the sweet, open optimism that they possess. My goal as a pediatrician is to help guide children into a healthy, happy adulthood. My father is also a pediatrician and has always been a big role model for me. I seek to make a difference in peoples’ lives while having as much fun as he does every day.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and watching my garden grow.
