get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

my interest in Psychiatry began with a lifelong fascination with the human psyche. In medical school, I found that I had an affinity for Psychiatry, for learning about the inner lives of patients and helping them heal. In residency, I discovered the joy of working with children and families, sharing their struggles, admiring their resilience and their heroism.

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

I want to be part of an organization that does the right thing for the community. I see that as an overarching goal at Dayton Children's Hospital.

Dayton Children's is special because...

the people here are wonderful! It's a happy, friendly, supportive workforce and very professional.  We all work hard and pull together to do our very best for our kids and families. And the kids! The kids are amazing.

They keep changing their style around of how they do things. Nurse came out and advised that they went ahead and took my daughter to the office for visit and I could go back shortly. Then my daughter comes out and was finished with the appointment, they never came to get me.

Listens to the child and the parent. Makes no assumptions, she is there to understand the situation. Very understanding and is only interested in finding the best resources/solutions!
