get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

the field of neurosurgery is a challenging and very rewarding field that is ever changing and advancing.


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

it provides excellent care for their patients and supports and encourages their staff to seek opportunities to grow professionally.


Dayton Children's is special because...

we are just small enough to allow families to feel that they are given individualized care where the staff get to know them by name and that they can be an integral part of their children's care.

Dayton Survey

From start to finish the staff was friendly and professional. This was the first encounter with the nurse practitioner and she was absolutely wonderful. She reviewed old results, inquired about our concerns, and shared personal experiences. It was a great experience and would highly recommend her.
