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.

This doctor was very informative she was very alert she was very receptive on my son's behavior as far as with his knee and anything else. I would recommend her for any other child care needs when it comes to physical ability.

She was very very good with the child. She was good with the parent. She explains things very simply that you could understand a new when you walked out of the office. You knew what was going on. It wasn't one that really sure what she said think she was very clear very helpful. She obviously knew her business very well and we were just very comfortable with the outcome and the answers that we needed. She was just amazing that I came back. I came back and told them how wonderful I thought she was.
