get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

it is an honor to be given the trust of families to provide critical and complex care to my patients while they are most vulnerable and can't speak for themselves.

I like working with kids because...

they are so unique at every stage of development and are not just "little adults".

Dayton Children's is special because...

it is constantly finding new innovative ways to improve the health of all children within its reach.
