get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I welcome the challenge of being able to treat a wide range of patients (premature infants to young adults) and illnesses. I also enjoy being able to connect with caregivers and provide education in regards to childhood health and wellness. Anticipatory guidance and making an impact in population health is also an important part of Pediatrics.

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

it is a special extended family, where there is a supportive environment to all those who practice here. This atmosphere is conducive to supporting our Hospital’s mission (to improve the health status of all children through service, education, research and advocacy), and vision (to be the first choice for children’s health).

Dayton Children's is special because...

we strive to put our patients first. Our values support our hospital’s mission and vision. We work collaboratively to provide a safe environment for both our patients and care providers. We are compassionate during every interaction with our patients and colleagues. We attempt to create value for our patients, so that we are working to deliver the highest quality of care in a safe and efficient way. We make an effort to own our processes, outcomes and experiences. We approach our work with an innovative perspective, and put our patients and their experiences at the center of all that we do.
