  • "Helping children is my life's dream"

As both a mother and a doctor, I feel very fortunate to be able to care for children and see them grow and thrive. As a pediatrician, I am especially committed to keeping the larger objective of providing medical care in view: my ultimate goal is to help children grow and develop into healthy adults. With that in mind, I stay up-to-date with the latest medical information, so that I am able to provide the best care for my patients. It is also important to me to address the emotional health of my patients as they progress through the different stages of childhood and the unique challenges of adolescence.

It is a privilege to build lasting relationships with families in my practice. I am always here to address questions and listen to the concerns of my patients and their families. My desire to become a pediatrician has always been rooted in my love of being around children; when I encountered pediatrics in medical school, I fell in love with it and never looked back. Helping children is my life's dream, and I am so lucky to be able to realize it in my practice every day.
