get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I have always been very interested about how the brain can control the many things we do in life. It is facinating to me how an individual exists in two states of life - awake and asleep.

I like working with kids because...

they are innocent and vulnerable and need help.

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

it takes very good care of it's healthcare workers and provides a good environment to deliver care.

Dayton Children's is special because...

it employs a diverse group of people and serves a unique function to deliver care to a community that is diverse.
