Get to Know Me+

I chose my specialty because... I enjoy the challenge that comes with caring for the ill neonate and because I am providing the right care for both the infant and their parents and family.

I like working with kids because... they are so resilient through the most difficult times.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because... I wanted to work at a children's hospital where all the sub-specialties are available to provide the right care for the infants that I treat.

Dayton Children's is special because... It is our local children's hospital and the best place for sick infants and children to go to get better.

My personal Interests are... running, playing golf, and spending time with my family.
