get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

Psychiatry allows me the chance to spend time really listening to and connecting with every child that I treat. Each child's mental health needs are unique and require a personalized approach tailored to them.

I like working with kids because...

They keep me young! Children say what they think and are open to learning new things about how the world works. They keep me honest and challenge me to see the world in new and different ways.

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

I am impressed by the sense of passion, purpose and teamwork that everyone here brings to their work every day.

Dayton Children's is special because...

Everyone here is single-minded in their purpose of providing the best care possible for each child we treat as if they were our own.
