  • “This has always been my lifelong calling.”

I chose to specialize in pediatric pulmonology because I wanted to combine my experience in general pediatrics with my personal experience to help patients. In my 20s, I developed significant asthma, so I know how it feels to be the patient that can’t breathe.

In my work, I take a collaborative approach. I understand that parents are the ones on the front lines. They are the experts on their child. My role is to support and educate them so they feel empowered in managing their child’s condition.

In addition to being a provider, I’m also a parent, so I can relate. I know how hard it is — all the time and energy you give to that little person. But it’s the most rewarding thing in the world.
