get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

pediatric optometry always peaked my interest in school. Once I learned I enjoyed it, I never looked back.

Dayton Children's is special because...

they make quality of patient care the highest priority.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

I am excited to join a new specialty department and bring quality eye care to patients in the area.

I like working with kids because...

Kids are entertaining and challenging all in one breath. They keep me on my toes and never fail to surprise me. It's the most rewarding when they are successful!

We had a really great experience the nurse and Dr. were very patient with our 2 year old who was not very cooperative but was trying very hard. They made it very easy on him and we're really thankful for the treatment we had there. Thank you.
