get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

of my love for enhancing the lives of children and their families by answering their "why's" and "how's".

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

of its commitment to go above and beyond to make sure every child in the community receives the healthcare (including behavioral healthcare) that is needed to actualize their potential!

Dayton Children's is special because...

it is willing to do whatever it takes to make things better for our  children and larger community.

I like working with kids because...

I like the energetic way they connect with their potential once it is identified.
