get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I have always wanted to work with newborns no matter how big, small, critically ill, or stable, to provide them with the best possible start in life.

I like working with kids because...

they are our future and we can positively impact their growth and development with every interaction we have with them.

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

of the friendly environment and atmosphere, the strong team work amongst the different interdisciplinary teams, and because we never turn down a child no matter their medical issue(s). We are large enough to be leaders in healthcare and the community, yet small enough to make a positive impact on the newborns/children and families we provide care to.

Dayton Children's is special because...

the children and families are always put first.
