get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I enjoy the challenge that comes with caring for the ill neonate and because I am providing the right care for both the infant and their parents and family.

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

I wanted to work at a children's hospital where all the sub-specialties are available to provide the right care for the infants that I treat.

Dayton Children's is special because...

It is our local children's hospital and the best place for sick infants and children to go to get better.
