get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I have a passion for the power of nutrition and medical nutrition therapy in patient care.


I like working with kids because...

their energy is contagious, and they inspire me each day to be the best registered dietitian I can be. It is a priviledge to provide nutrition care where nutrition is such a key component of a child's overall health and well-being.


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

their mission, "Relentless pursuit of optimal health for every child within our reach." aligns with my own mission as a health care provider. Dayton Children's has been there for me from the start! I began my journey as a volunteer, then a dietetic intern, and now I am an employee!


Dayton Children's is special because...

it is truly a family here! Dayton Children's cares about their patients and employees as a whole. It is an honor to be apart of something so special where everyone in the hospital has your back, and has the common goal to provide above and beyond care.
