get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

breastfeeding is known to have great benefits for both mother and infant but also can be challenging in the beginning. Having the right support can make all the difference in terms of how long one continues to breastfeed or pump for.

I like working with kids because...

being able to help children (and their families) is one of the most rewarding jobs I can think of!

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

I find it a blessing to be able to go to work and help provide care to children.

Dayton Children's is special because...

as a parent who has children with special needs, having a local children's hospital, so close to home, who offers a wide variety of specialties provides a sense of comfort.
