  • “To me, each age group has its own jewel-like quality that shines through.”

What I love most about nursing is its holistic approach to patient care. The combination of an evidence-based, whole-person approach and being caring, compassionate, and respectful of all individuals really spoke to me. My parents both worked in medicine, and their passion for helping others was a huge influence on my decision to also pursue a career in medicine.

As a pediatric provider, I focus on the family and all the things that could be affecting a child's life and well-being. With every visit, my hope is that I can help children get back to the activities that really bring them joy and happiness. I feel that is incredibly rewarding. To me, each age group has its own jewel-like quality that shines through; they are powerhouses, so full of strength and resilience.
