get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I enjoy helping patients feel better and improving their quality of life. Neurological disorders such as epilepsy, chronic headaches/pain, Tourette's etc. can be so overwhelming and life changing. It is rewarding to help patients and their families overcome the challenges related to their diagnosis and live life to their fullest.

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

Dayton Children's truly cares about the kids and the families that walk through the door. The staff fully support Dayton Children's mission and it feels like a home away from home.

Dayton Children's is special because...

we are a free standing pediatric hospital with awesome staff who come to work because we enjoy providing excellent health care to our pediatric community.
