“I love helping kids achieve healthy skin so they can feel their best.”
As a doctor, my approach is to build trusted partnerships with families and children so that I can understand their treatment goals and help them achieve these goals in ways that are most comfortable for them. It's important to me that both parents and children feel heard and understood.
It's incredibly rewarding to empower kids through healthier skin, which can mean advocating for just the right treatment and discovering new and improved treatments. I love helping kids achieve healthy skin so they can feel their best. I'm dedicated to connecting patients with clinical research trials and contributing to research on specific skin conditions particularly hemangiomas, birthmarks, and PHACE syndrome. My research also aims to develop solutions to health disparities through improved access to pediatric dermatologists and treatments.
It is a joy to care for kids as they grow—from infants to children to successful teens. Having a skin condition can be challenging. I love helping kids have healthy skin so they can focus on having fun!
