get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

It fascinated me to see the positive impact that emotional and physical nourishment and care can have on someone at an early age.

I like working with kids because...

I prefer to think of myself as an overgrown child and I find it fascinating to watch children grow into self-sufficient and confident learners. Personally, it is an endeavor that involves learning new perspectives and new things every day. Having the opportunity to partner with families and help a child to reach his full potential is highly rewarding.

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

This is an opportunity for me to contribute to an exciting, forward-thinking, patient-oriented subspecialty clinic where various disciplines work together.

Dayton Children's is special because...

In my view, Dayton Children put patients first by creating a hassle-free environment and combining multiple disciplines under one roof in order to provide world-class care.
