get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

child and adolescent psychiatry can help to change the trajectory of a child's life by improving their mental health


I like working with kids because...

they see everything as being possible. They don't see the barriers most adults do in everyday life. They help us all to think 'outside the box'.


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

I love this community. I grew up in Dayton and am so excited to come and serve the community.


Dayton Children's is special because...

it has a small hometown feel to it.
