get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I wanted to help children safely participate in exercise and activity, while managing their illnesses and injuries appropriately.


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

I wanted to work in a setting which sees children as a unique population of patients who cannot simply be treated as small adults.


Dayton Children's is special because...

Dayton Children's is big enough to provide excellent care to children with a variety of conditions, but small enough that you know colleagues in other departments who see the same patients.

My son was given an x-ray before we had determined whether or not we needed an MRI and I had suggested that we might need an MRI. It would have been nice to have that assessment prior to the X-ray because now, I'm paying two co-pays for two different tests. One of which I think we probably didn't needs as we probably knew were going to go to the MRI anyway.

The athlete's program for female young athletes is a really great program and I'm so glad that my daughter can be a part of it and work through some of the things that athletes go through that maybe our at home family couldn't necessarily help with. It's a great program and I'm excited to start it.
