get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I fell in love with pediatrics when i was 11 years old. I was inspired by my uncle who is a pediatrician in Congo. I watched him working from home. Parents would bring their kids to his house at anytime (day or night) and he would take care of them.


I like working with kids because...

their resilience is inspiring


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

it is a nice work environment.


Dayton Children's is special because...

they care about kids and their staff.
