  • “My goal is to partner with families to foster every child's innate capacity to thrive.”

The beauty of the human body, starting with the physiology and how everything works together, inspires me. Medicine is the perfect fit for me because I love that through observation and listening to what patients are saying, I can reach a diagnosis and guide them accordingly. I find joy in working with children and consider myself lucky to be able to do so every day.

My approach is to focus on preventive health and to help foster every child's innate capacity to thrive. I partner with caregivers to deliver personalized care that is always family-centric. I am dedicated to being a trusted source of information for families and to use appropriate evidence-based medical therapies. I am especially interested in nutrition, mental health, and social relationships across every stage of development.

I enjoy working with patients from infancy through late teenage years. I incorporate my own life experience of having lived in multiple countries by always being culturally sensitive and appreciating the diversity of our patient population.
