get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I enjoy puzzling through complex problems. As a pediatric radiologist, I have the opportunity to be involved with many of the patients and families at DCH. It is incredibly rewarding to perform all forms of imaging for children and to work together with their care providers to provide the best health care possible.


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

I found that the pediatric specialists work well together as a team. I also loved the collaboration with medical education through Wright State University School of Medicine. I wanted a mid-west location providing radiology services within a free standing children’s hospital. I have enjoyed working as part of a great team of professionals dedicated to pediatrics.


Dayton Children's is special because...

it is the only hospital in our region devoted to children. Dayton Children’s provides an atmosphere of caring and support for the whole family with pediatric specialists dedicated exclusively to children’s health.
