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.
