get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I have a passion for working with newborns and their parents. It is a privilege to make a difference in the beginning of a family’s life. Often new parents especially parents with a child in the NICU are scared and vulnerable and we can help them get through these early challenges and learn to enjoy parenthood.

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

we make a difference every day for the children in the Miami Valley. We are big enough to be leaders in healthcare and in the community but small enough to make a difference in the lives of the families we touch.

Dayton Children's is special because...

we do what is right for kids!
