get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

sleep medicine is a very interesting blend of pulmonology, neurology, and psychology.

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

Dayton Children’s is the region’s only pediatric hospital and I have always wanted to specialize in caring for children. Children are more resilient, more innocent, and honestly just more fun!

Dayton Children's is special because...

Dayton Children’s is a place where the people truly care deeply for the children for which they are providing care. Everyone in the multidisciplinary team works together so well and the focus and values of Children’s support not only excellent medical care, but also create a positive experience for our patients and their families while they are in our care.
