  • “I have a lot of energy, which I funnel into being an advocate for each family I see.”

My mother was a special education teacher, so I grew up with a model of helping others. In high school I worked with children with disabilities and was a mentor for them, which inspired me to become a doctor.

I chose child neurology because I was interested in helping children with special needs, and was inspired by the family dynamics created when there's a child that has special needs.

Diseases that involve the brain can be very alarming to a family, but with additional teaching and describing how the brain works I help families understand their child's condition. I take a family-centered approach to care and believe in making decisions and developing a management plan together as a team.

I have a lot of energy, which I funnel into being an advocate for each family I see. I spend a lot of extra time going the extra mile, whether that's further diagnostic workup or making sure their care plan is fully executed. I am here for each family every step of the way.
