  • “Watching children grow up is an incredible privilege.”

I fell in love with pediatrics because I love working with kids. No matter how sick kids are, they find a way to be happy. Watching children grow up is an incredible privilege. It's so rewarding to be able to make an impact on a person as they develop.

In my work as a pediatrician, I take a balanced approach I call “practical pediatrics.” I work together with families to navigate the health of their children from birth through high school, acting as a partner, doctor and advocate for their child and for the family as a whole. I really want to make families feel comfortable, and I want them to know they can tell me anything. I'm a parent, so I understand what parents go through. I try to reassure and educate families when they have concerns while at the same time respecting their unique cultural traditions. I will always tell them what I think is right, but ultimately we are partners and make decisions together. I am here to support each family on the journey of raising a healthy child.
