get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

it is truly a joy and an honor for me to be able to help kids and families find their way through tough circumstances and reach their goals.

I like working with kids because...

kids are just amazing. They are strong, creative, and resilient, among many other wonderful things.

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

I love that the providers at Dayton Children’s are not only thinking about how kids are doing when they walk through our doors, but also about how kids are faring when they're at home, school, and simply living their normal lives. This hospital and the folks who work here are so committed to helping kids live better by thinking about our children as whole people. That approach is important to me as a provider and it’s exciting to be part of a group of professionals who really care about that too.

Dayton Children's is special because...

It is large enough to make a big difference in the lives of the kids in our community and small enough that kids don't get lost in the crowd. The size of the hospital and the dedication of the providers here to the well-being of our kids makes it so much easier to provide great care.
