get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I enjoy and see the benefit of teaching clients and their families how to make choices to prevent onset and progression of chronic disease, treat undernutrition, improve the mind- body connection, live a balanced lifestyle, meet their health and nutrition goals, overcome obstacles, and adopt healthy and sustainable nutrition and lifestyle habits.

I like working with kids because...

nutrition plays such an important role in growth and development and prevention of chronic disease. I believe teaching and modeling healthy habits to our children can be one of the best gifts we can give them!

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

of the special values and culture of the organization and the commitment to advancing the health in the children of our community. Dayton Children’s embraces a collaborative team approach to the care provided, and recognizes the importance of nutrition in the growth and development of the pediatric population.

Dayton Children's is special because...

it truly fosters a culture of caring and going above and beyond for the patients and families of the community.
